Selling Estates

Estate situations are associated with significant transition in the family and therefore can be an emotional and stressful time.  We pride ourselves on being a “One Stop” provider for many estate clients, as we are equipped to handle the auction and sale of both personal property and the real estate involved.  We are one of very few companies capable of offering this “One Stop” service.

Being an executor or co-executor of an estate can be quite overwhelming.  Many executors do not know where to begin or where to turn. Much of the founding business and continued growth of Adam’s Auctions has been from handling estate situations with ease, professionalism and compassion.

The personal property can be handled in two ways.  An on-site auction is deemed appropriate in certain situations where the quantity and quality of the items warrants a private auction.  This decision is made by auction company personnel.  Terms for on-site auctions are determined on a case-by-case basis, as on-site auctions vary greatly in content, type, location and degree of involvement needed by auction company staff.

As an alternative to an on-site auction, our monthly multiple estate and consignment auction works best in many situations. Most auction companies have gone to a monthly or bi-weekly large consignment auctions, as they generate a larger pool of buyers and therefore better return for the sellers.  A pickup service is offered by Adam’s Auctions which allows family members to identify items they want to keep and our crew will pack, load and store the remaining items to be sold at our next monthly auction.  Click here to learn more about our monthly multiple estate and consignment auction.

The real estate involved in an estate can be handled by the auction process, which works very well for these types of properties.  The auction process works well for properties that have been lived in for many years and have maybe not gone through the inspection or code enforcement process.  By using the auction method, the family does not have to bring the property ‘up to code’, make repairs or improve cosmetic conditions.  The property is sold “As Is’, in its current condition.  To view a summary of the advantages presented by using the auction method, click here.  For a complete guide on how the real estate auction process works, click here.
