FAQ

What happens to the items left?
Rarely is this the case with our sales, we are aggressive in our sales, and have formed great relationships with dealers and customers. Our motto is “We Want to Sell it All”
We offer full cleanout services, including donation of items that may be left after the sale.
What do we (the client) need to do to prepare for you to do our sale?
Remove all items for sale prior to pictures, marketing, and staging of the sale.
Remove all personal items, papers with personal information, and personal photos.
If items not for sale can’t be removed from the home, please identify a private room for not for sale items.
If items of furniture can’t be removed, or placed in a private room, those items need to be identified and labeled as “Not For Sale”.
How Long Does It Take?
Depending on the size, and contents, we can prepare your home for sale in 2-5 days. Research and preparing is key, we spend a great deal of time understanding the value of your sale.
Most sales range from 1-3 days, with the occasional large sale that can last up to 5 days.
If you request cleanout and donation services after a sale, that process may take up to an additional 3 days. We will advise of those timelines if the need arises.
How Do People Find Our Sales?
We are listed as a Gold member on www.estatesales.net (the internet’s premier and most viewed source for estate sales).
Our web page www.mykbeths.com
We advertise in local newspapers, and use signage to direct the flow of traffic to the sale.
We have an extensive personal email list, combined with the extensive email list of estatesales.net to reach thousands of customers each sale.
We use social media, such as Facebook, and twitter to connect with customers.
Our aggressive advertising and marketing strategy is second to none. This dedication means you will have a successful sale with more items sold, and yields a better financial result at settlement for you.
What does it Cost:
There are no consultation fees. Our commission covers all set up of a typical sale.
Our fee is 35% of the gross sales of sales of $3,000.00 or more, and for sales less than $3,000.00 we may negotiate a higher rate. We will advise at our initial consultation if we feel your sale will generate less than this amount.
We cover all costs of all advertising on the internet, and (1) newspaper advertisement of your choice, or that we feel best helps the success of your sale.
How and when do we get paid?
Myk-Beth’s provides a full sales summary of all major items sold, and the amount those items sold for at settlement.
Your certified check reflects the full 65% of the total sales with absolutely NO deductions, taxes, or hidden fees. If the sale is estimated to be less than $3,000.00 the fee is generally 50% of gross sales. This additional percentage would be determined at the initial meeting.
Your settlement summary and check will be delivered to you within 7 days from the last day of the sale. If you are local, it may be delivered sooner.
