FAQs

What if my house is on the market, can I have an estate sale?
Yes, you can have a sale. Having an estate sale is one of the best ways to sell your house.  

It’s like having an open house for 2 to 3 days with over 2,000 people viewing your home.


How do you determine your commission and what is included?
Our commission is determined by the size of the estate and quality and the overall condition of the estate. 

We take care of all upfront costs, advertising, experienced preparation, sales staff and pricing.


Why can’t I have my own estate sale?
You can conduct your own sale, but we have the staff of professionals with 20 years of combined knowledge to sell your items. 

Having your own estate sale can become very overwhelming and individuals end up selling items far below market value.  

Estate Sales By K&D, LLC can also set up your sale in a timely matter and leave you with an empty house.


What should I do before having a sale?
Individuals are not required to do anything!!  You should never throw anything away. 

When you hire Estate Sales By K&D, LLC all you need to do is provide the keys and we will take care of the rest.


What if I only want to sell a couple of items?
We will set up a free consultation and assess the items you would like to sell. 

We will give our professional opinion and put a plan into motion for the success of your estate. 


When and how will I get paid?
We will provide an  inventory of the items sold and a check for your portion. 

The check will be made available 9 days following the close of your sale.  

Estate Sales By K&D, LLC will either hand deliver or mail your payment.


What happens to the unsold items?
We try to sell everything in the estate but there are some items left unsold.  

We can set up a charity donation, a trash removal service, or a third party to take care of the remnants.


How do you advertise the sale?
We promote all our sales on several websites, emails to our loyal customers with pictures 

and by calling personal collectors of certain valuable items.


Are customers allowed to buy items before the sale?
We value all of our clients and would like to create a equal opportunity for purchases. 

But the ultimate goal is to sell everything. If we need to conduct a pre-sale to get the most money for the estate, we will.


What do I need to do to help?
We do all the work. Please decide what you wish to keep before we sign the contract. 


How will you organize, display and protect my property?
Our experienced and talented staff work to display your merchandise to its best advantage creating 

an attractive "buying atmosphere."  Several staff members patrol the residence the days of the sale. 

 Small valuables such as quality jewelry and firearms are kept in a locked display case.


What about clean up after the estate sale?
Our goal is to sell it all and leaving the premises swept clean.  

If there is excessive trash we can arrange to have it removed at a very reasonable cost to you. 

 We do not dispose of hazardous materials, non-working appliances or non-running automobiles.


How do you know so much about the estate sale business?
Our staff has over 20 years combined experience in retail sales, the antique business, estate sales 

and personal property liquidation in the South Texas. Estate sales are a full-time business for us. 

 We know our merchandise and our market through experience and research.  

Should we need assistance in appraising an item we call on our associates who are experts in their fields.
