Clearing House Estate Sales is the tri-state area’s answer to complete household liquidation. We handle down-sizing and estates with care, sensitivity and professionalism. We believe it is our responsibility to simplify the process and maximize your financial returns.
All of our estate sales are conducted online and we have found that the expanded audience and bidding enthusiasm generated on the internet increase sale proceeds by 30-50% over traditional estate sale formats. Additionally, this format maintains the seller’s privacy and limits the risks and exposures associated with a traditional estate sale.
If you are an estate executor or attorney, down-sizing, relocating, or managing a divorce settlement get in touch with us today to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation on-site evaluation of your property by a member of our experienced staff. We offer highly competitive commission rates, and since our sales are conducted online, seller’s receive an itemized inventory list and settlement check.
