When clients call Complete Estate Sales Northwest for their initial consultation, they usually ask the question: “What can be sold at an estate sale?”
Our answer is that almost anything you find in a house might sell. Along with the usual antiques, furniture, household and garage items, a complete estate sale can include pieces of the house which are slated for removal or remodeling. Appliances, fixtures, cabinets, doors and windows have sold at our Seattle area estate sales in the past.
Our complete estate sale in Kirkland, Washington the last week of July is a case in point. Although the items are serviceable and in good condition, the clients and their realtor have decided to use the Kirkland estate sale to sell any and all of the kitchen appliances and fixtures; they plan to renovate the kitchen before listing the house. That means an oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, under-counter microwave and all the cabinetry are available for shoppers coming to the Kirkland estate, all in great condition and modern enough to give service in style for years to come.
For the clients, selling the kitchen down to the walls saves time, money and dump fees. For customers of Complete Estate Sales, it's a chance to replace aging or failing appliances, install cupboards in a garage or workshop, improve a rental property or revamp their own kitchen for a fraction of the price of new.
