Frequently Asked Questions about Estate Sales and Strictly Estate Sales


Q: What IS an estate sale, anyway?

A: There are many reasons for people to have an estate sale: a death in the family, moving to a new home, poor health, or altered financial circumstances. The term has been more loosely applied to any sale involving an entire household of possessions. Regardless the reason the details can sometimes be overwhelming. We are here to help!

Q:  How far in advance should I call you?

A: Obviously, the sooner the better. We often have sales lined up for several weeks in advance, although some of them may be flexible, and we may be able to fit you in at the last minute.

Q:  What will it cost me for Strictly Estate Sales to execute my estate sale?

A: There are no up-front or out-of-pocket expenses to you. We will negotiate with you a percentage of total sales for our commission, and simply deduct that from the proceeds at the end of the sale.

Q: How long does it take you to "set up" an estate sale?

A: Each sale varies, depending on the amount of contents involved.  Large estates, or "hoarding" situations can take a couple of weeks.  An average home normally takes only a week to get ready for an estate sale.

Q: How many days to you hold an estate sale open?

A: We usually hold the estate sale open to the public for 3-4 days. 

Q: Where do you advertise your estate sales and liquidations?

A: We advertise on our web page, by means of our email list of over 500 buyers, as well as thousands of             buyers on,,, on Craig's List, and with directional signs throughout the area.

Q: How do I arrange for the Strictly Business to execute my sale?

A: Just give us a call at 760.963.4208 or email us at and arrange for a  free initial assessment.

Q: I don't have an "entire household" of possessions. Can you help me sell what I have?

A: We do need a certain quantity of sellable items, in order for us to hold a liquidation sale for you. However, it does not need to be an "entire household", especially if there are lots of tools, jewelry, desirable collectibles, etc. Give us a call, and we will tell you whether or not we can do a liquidation sale for you, based upon what you have to sell.

Q: What happens to the items that don't sell?

A: We strive to sell every last item in the house for the highest price we can achieve. However, unlike a store, we can't sit back and wait days, months, or years for items to sell. We only have 3-4 day to get it all sold. So there probably will be items left over. At the end of the sale, if you wish, we can arrange to have a charity of your choice come and pick up the remaining items and provide you with a form for deducting a write-off from your income taxes.  Also, you can choose to keep any unsold items.

Q: Why should I hire Strictly Estate Sales to execute my estate sale?

A: The main reason: We make the entire process stress free!!

·         We are insured & bonded

·         We have NO hidden fees

·         We pay all advertising

·         We send out an email to thousands of estate customers

·         We have experienced staff members (sales & antique qualified)

·         We set up the entire estate top to bottom

·         We control the prices according to today’s market

·         We accept credit cards (to insure higher gross sales)

·         We have wonderful references

We only work for you! We strictly work on a percentage basis. We do not own a shop; we feel this is a conflict of interest!!  We take pride in our customers and their belongings!

Q: What do you do to "set up" an estate liquidation sale?

A: First, we set up our display tables throughout the house, and re-arrange furniture as necessary. Then, we go through the house, emptying drawers and boxes, cleaning items as necessary and arranging them on our display tables. Finally, we affix prices to all displayed items.

Q: Should I sort items out, or clean the house up before you arrive?

A: NO, NO, NO! Please do not throw anything away, even if you feel certain it is of no value. And sorting and arranging is our job. Typically these situations can be emotional and we can do it quicker and more efficient - you don't need to do anything.

Q: Can I assign minimum prices to my possessions?

A: We do allow our clients to set minimum prices on a limited number of items, and will work with our clients to meet their needs. However, we know the area marketplace, and will tell you what the maximum price something is likely to bring. We will allow clients to set minimum prices on some items, but obviously we have to have the freedom to price items to sell, at the prices we know will sell.

Q: How do I know what sold, or how much any given item sold for?

A: We provide you with a detailed accounting of the sale, showing exactly what sold, and for how much. (Note: minor items, such as towels and washcloths, kitchenwares or toiletries, are    sometimes grouped into general categories, but all major items are listed in detail.)

Q: How soon will I, the client, be paid after the estate sale is over?

A: We deliver your proceeds and a detailed accounting of the sale the day after the sale, or we can mail   you a check along with the accounting sheet; whichever is convenient for you.

Q: What if my estate contains fine art or very rare collectibles?

A: An antique or collectible has to be very rare indeed for us not to have prior sales experience or knowledge of it. For fine art and ancient artifacts, if we cannot find the necessary information, we             have sources of appraisers and dealers who do. If we can't price something confidently, we will let you know before the sale, and if you wish, put it out for bid.

Q: What if my estate contains motor vehicles?

A:  We have had great success in selling all sorts of motor vehicles at our estate sales.  Typically the commission rate for vehicles is 10%-15%, which is much less than the commission rate for the household items.  We simply ask that you have all the registration and ownership papers available as soon as possible as we prefer to advertise any vehicles immediately to maximize exposure for you.

Q: Should I wait until the house is sold, to hold my estate sale?

A: Some real estate brokers may disagree with us, but our answer is no. Once the house is sold, time for             holding an estate sale can be very limited or even nonexistent. It is far better to have the estate sale right away, then clean, repair, paint the house as necessary, once everything has been removed.  With the amount of traffic during the sale, we have had cases where houses have sold as a result of the exposure to potential buyers who can view the house at their own pace and then contact the real estate agent to make an offer.

Q: Do you sell items on Ebay or other online auctions?

A: Generally, no. The time delay, shipping and other complications usually make this unfeasible.

I found Strictly Business on the Internet, not knowing much about how estate sales work. Leslie and her team were knowledgeable, comprehensive, prompt and answered all my questions before I even asked them. The sale far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend them 100%. I would definately use them again if I am in need of any estate sale services.P. KramerNovember 2014
I had the privilege to attend the massive sale this weekend for the western town in Valley Center. I was so impressed at how organized eveything was and that every single item was priced! I can imagine what an undertaking that was. In spite of the enormous crowds, I truly enjoyed myself and think these guys did an INCREDIBLE job with this sale and the huge volume of people. You deserve a big pat on the back! I took your card because I would use this company in a heart beat! This was truly a once in a lifetime sale. Good Job!

Leslie and her team are fantastic. They are efficient, organized friendly and fair. They made my impending move remarkably easier. They sold almost everything in the house and helped me make the tough decisions that go with a move. I appreciate the fact that they are one of few companies that will host an estate sale while the owner is still in the house. This is a difficult task , and they pulled it off with such ease. Thank you Leslie & Will!D. Price, Yorba Linda
Having been a regular to Leslie's sales for 2-3 years, and having had an unfortunate experience with another (large, franchised) company in Orange County for an estate sale for my mother's estate, I fully appreciate the level of service and professionalism provided by Leslie and her coworkers.
They show great respect and care for their clients and for the estate which they are working to handle. Items are inventoried, and those of higher value are tracked individually. I don't recall ever seeing an item that wasn't priced, either individually or on a list that shows prices by category where appropriate. The sale is monitored with employees moving through to insure that customers are helped and the estate is treated respectfully by the customers. It is well-secured with only one entrance/exit where payment is collected for items prior to leaving the property.
It is a pleasure to shop Leslie's sales and I so wish I had been able to use her services in Orange County (but we were far from her area) as I had a terribly different experience with the company I ended up hiring.

I wholehearted and highly recommend Strictly Business/Estate Sales to anyone needing to hire an estate sale company!

We really didn't know what to expect from a sale since we had a lot of tools and farm equipment, in addition to household items from my father's estate. Leslie and Will did a great job organizing and finding buyers for all of the equipment, guns, tractors and tools. We were very happy with the level of commitment to making this sale work. We have had nothing but positive comments from those in our area that attended the sale.S. BrownSeptember 2015
