THE BOOMER BURDEN
"There are approximately 78 million Baby Boomers and 40 million people over 65 years old. With increasing numbers of boomers and older adults across the globe, they are all leaving behind a lot more than their children bargained for."
-Julie Hall, Author of The Boomer Burden

ESTATE SALES & LIQUIDATION
Once the valuables have been removed for sale and/or safekeeping, our team of professionals will review and appraise all furniture, appliances, tools, art, decor, collectables, etc. Items are individually cleaned boxed, tagged and prepared for sale. Generally, three days are spent conducting a public Estate Sale right on site. Advertisement of the sale is done via Albuquerque Journal, Website, Email blasts to consistent buyers and dealers and onsite signage in the vicinity of the home. After-sale period ends, all modestly valued remaining items are cleared out the residence. Also removed are non-saleable objects and household debris, leaving the premises “broom clean” in preparation for inspections, having the home on the market, and the real estate closing.
Our fee for Estate Services is based on a percentage of cash received for the total items sold and includes all expense relating to advertising your estate sales, cleaning, labor, trash removal, moving of all items from the home and any incidental costs. So there is no out-of-pocket expense to you. We move quickly and can handle all types of estates. If you are using our Auction Services only, our fee is also based on a percentage of total items sold, however, we ask that you arrange for your items to be brought to the auction house. A Touch of Class Estate Sales & Auction Services is Bonded and Insured. Please call Mechele today at (505)259-6684 and let her take the burden off your shoulders.
