Estate Auctions Are Valuable Tools for Families – Middle Tennessee. The death of a parent or family member can be emotionally overwhelming, not to mention physically & mentally draining.
In an instant you are confronted with funeral and burial details, notifying family members, arranging travel, rearranging work schedules, and getting the kids out of school. Once you have completed the memorial service for your loved one, as the Executor of the estate you are now faced with identifying and closing financial accounts and utilities, contacting attorneys, movers, cleaning services, probating wills, and the list goes on.
Now that you have completed all of those tasks, you may be left with a vacant home, full of personal belongings from this individuals past life. What are you going to do with all of the belongings that they have collected over a lifetime? Who is going to mow the yard while we list the home for sale? Who is going to be available to check on the home to make sure it hasn’t been broken into or vandalized? What are going to be the carrying costs of insurance & utilities while we wait for the home to sell? What if the property doesn’t sell?
These are just a few of the questions you must ask yourself, especially if the estate is not located in your home city or town. A call to your favorite auctioneer should be your first step. Auctioneers have developed a network of service providers from attorneys to movers, mowers to cleaners, and even grief counselors that can assist you in handling an estate. They will provide you with a professional support staff that will relinquish much of the stress your are experiencing.
Choosing to have an estate auction is the best option for controlling time and the expenses incurred by the estate. An auctioneer will provide you a marketing plan uniquely tailored to the real estate and personal property to be sold on the same day. The interest created by personal property auctions generally serves as a catalyst for prices to soar when it comes time for the real estate auction.
By utilizing an auctioneer and the accelerated marketing method, in 60 days or less you will have the real estate and personal property sold and removed, the estate closed, and funds from the estate dispersed. The stresses and worries of handling your family member’s assets properly are completely relieved.
When you find yourself in the middle of what seems the insurmountable task of handling someone’s estate, call an auctioneer. We’re here to help.
