Estate Services

Whether you are merely down-sizing  or you have an entire estate that requires liquidation Rural Origins Estate Service is here to help.

Owned and operated by a USPAP (Universal Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices) compliant, certified personal property appraiser, Rural Origin offers an array of estate services from assistance in pricing to complete estate liquidation and clean out. Unless instructed otherwise, we conduct a sale with two objectives:
A. To sell every available item; and
B. To maximize the proceeds from the sale.

Since estate sales involve planning and careful attention to detail our services include but are not limited to:

Consulting with homeowners, family, or executors.
Researching and establishing fair market values.
Sorting and organizing merchandise.
Ticketing items.
Merchandise display
Advertising
Conducting the sale
In cases of complete liquidation clean-out, thrift stores and interested parties will submit sealed bids for the purchase of any unsold estate sale items. We’ll gladly sweep, vacuum and hand the house keys to your realtor whenever appropriate.

You pay nothing upfront. We charge a flat 35% commission which covers all costs INCLUDING advertising! If you don’t make money, we don’t make money, its as simple as that.

We understand that change is difficult and what to do is often confusing. We’re here to take the stress, work and worry out of the liquidation equation and we’ll do so while holding ourselves to the highest ethical standards in the industry.
