Thank you for considering Estate Sales by Jexters to assist with your family’s estate sale needs. It is inevitable that, at some point, most people will be faced with the task of estate liquidation - be it the passing of a family member, making a big move, or downsizing a home. You can count on us to treat your family’s items with care and respect as we work to ensure your family receives top dollar for the estate contents. We understand that when you choose a company to manage the liquidation of your family’s estate, you are placing a great deal of trust in people you don't know. We appreciate the trust, and we will not let you down.
First, give us a call at (435) 673-4596 for a free initial consultation. We want to meet you, speak with you, and get a sense of your needs and expectations. Should you choose us for the project, we’ll sign an Estate Sale Contract, decide on a date for the preparation and sale, and get right to work.
We organize the sale and price all items. We market the sale through local media and social media outlets and, if allowed by city ordinance, on sale days we place Estate Sale signs in the area to attract local traffic.
Once the sale is organized – which takes about one to two weeks, depending on the size of the estate and scope of the project, we hold a 3-day estate sale beginning on Friday morning and running through mid-day on Sunday.
On Monday and Tuesday following the sale, we remove all unsold items to a location previously determined by the client. This might be to a designated charitable organization, to Jexters Auction house for consignment to auction, or any other location the client desires.
Finally, we employ a cleaning crew to mop floors, vacuum carpets, wipe visible surfaces, and wipe interior sinks and toilets throughout the estate. The estate should be real-estate agent ready by Wednesday after the sale.
Our fees for local estate sales in the Southern Utah area are 35%-50%. If we must travel outside of Washington County, the fees increase to 45%-50%. Depending on the distance, there could be a travel fee added for management and staff members. The commission covers only the items we sell, and there are no up front fees involved.
The price is all inclusive. There are no hidden fees or costs. We provide labor, supplies and equipment, credit card processing, unsold item removal, and basic after-sale clean up. Should something arise that will result in an increased cost, we will contact the client immediately and, together, we can decide on how to proceed and what additional costs might be involved.
Within five business days after the conclusion of the sale, we will provide a written summary of sale results showing the gross sale proceeds, itemized fees and expenses deducted, if applicable, and the net proceeds. We will mail a check within 10 business days following the sale, less any agreed-upon fees and expenses.
