Welcome to Phyllis Bennett Estate Sales, a privately owned and operated business. Born and raised in Arkansas and a long time resident of Hot Springs, I know my community well, and am here to serve the needs of each and every client.
I do not own a booth or a storefront.
Our clients' needs, privacy and confidentiality are of the highest importance to us. We set out to categorize, stage, clean, appraise, price, and display attractively to maximize sales while we treat all your effects and furnishing with utmost care. Our professional staff is suited to your families needs and situation. We go by the Golden Rule of estate sales Don't throw anything away!! This doesn't mean you can't throw trash away, but if you have questions about a particular item, let our staff determine if the item is sellable. Our goal is to sell every item in the house.
This sale description was copied from EstateSales.NET on 5/24/2022 (215-115-3:27:14 AM). Please check there for accurate up-to-date information (24-100).
Pictures are taken and posted on a national website www.EstateSales.Net and Ashley's Finds, as well as professional business association marketing, point of sale signs, and direction street signs to your sale. With the compiled list of buyers and referrals, we have the ability to get the most the market value will allow.
Depending on how extensive, detail, and the size of the sale most estate sales require starting to work in the home a few weeks before the sale date, in order to do complete "discovery" of all items in the sale. That means ( as mentioned above) we need to inventory, clean, wash, dust, separate what is saleable and what is truly trash, and then start researching, displaying, and pricing begins. We bring in tables to display these items to be sold which will be covered nicely in order to display your items respectfully.
Pricing is based on our knowledge of the marketplace, references, and consulting a panel of experts in specific areas, as needed. We create a steady flow of interested buyers to your home and suggest if your home is for sale, to encourage your realtor to bring brochures and business cards prior to the sale for availability to interested parties.
During the sale days which are usually 2, 3, or 4 days depending on the situation, there are professionals who assist in selling and protecting your items. We have plain cloth security on site when it is necessary and all sales are final. When the sale is over, you have several options for consideration with the leftover property. Your home is left clean and ready for market or the next owner. The remaining items can be donated to various charities. I suggest Habitat for Humanity, Humane Society, Guardian Angels, Jackson House, Salvation Army, Goodwill, Disabled Americans Vets, or your local church or charity of your choice. You will receive a tax-deductible receipt for these items, which we can assist you in determining the value.
We are glad to assist you with a free consultation. We are efficient, fast and want to get you the most money for your tangible assets. Our fees are commission-based. You will receive your money in a timely manner with a breakdown of your inventory sale.
We welcome the chance to earn your trust and to deliver to you some of the best services in the industry. "
