How We Can Help You With Deceased Estate Auctions in Brisbane

The death of a family member or friend is one of the hardest things that we go through, and it can be even more challenging for those with the responsibilities of the executor of the last will and testament. Moving your elderly loved one into aged care can also be incredibly difficult, more so for family members having important responsibilities such as financial power of attorney.

In both circumstances, your elderly loved one’s estate must be organised, their possessions arranged, and a decision made on whether to bequeath or gift them to family members, or tsell them for a good financial return. At Property Clearance, we are aware of how exhausting this process can be, and provide customised services to manage the entire process for you.

Here are the main ways that we can help with the deceased estate auction for your loved one’s possessions.

  1. We use various selling methods, to get the highest price for each item
    Auctions aren’t always the best way to sell an item, and many common items won’t even be accepted by most auction houses. We sell items using the method that we believe will achieve the best financial return for the estate, including on-site or online auctions, in shops, in person sales, internet sales channels, or private sales to our network of buyers. We have extensive experience selling using these channels, and are able to deliver the maximum financial return for each item.
  2. We handle every single item
    Companies who arrange deceased estate auctions usually sell items using a single method: auctions. Many will only sell higher value items such as antiques, fine art, vehicles, etc. They might end up taking just 20% of the items—a partial solution that leaves you having to sell the rest. At Property Clearance, we handle every single item in the property. Our mission is to achieve the best return for everything in the estate that is cost effective to sell. Our clearance process is completed with care and respect, and we leave nothing behind.
  3. We will handle as much as you need us to
    We can take on however much you need for the deceased or living estate. If you’re interstate, we can arrange everything with you by phone, video call, or email, including collecting the property’s keys and working through your loved one’s home.
  4. We help the executor or attorney to meet their responsibilities
    Deceased estates are usually the responsibility of the executor or administrator of a will, or for a living estate the responsibility usually falls to those appointed as financial power of attorney. Both roles carry significant legal responsibilities. One of these is identifying, safeguarding, and cataloguing the assets of a deceased or living estate. At Property Clearance, we take care of this entire process for the executor or attorney, giving them the time they need to focus on their other responsibilities.
  5. We ensure that as much as possible from the home goes to use
    Unfortunately, some items are not cost effective to sell. When we identify these items, we will ask whether you’d like us to donate them to charity through our Pass-it-forward program, or give them to one of our reuse partners. Our Pass-it-forward program helps to provide items to people in the local community, giving them the chance to be valuable and useful to someone again. We don’t throw items away unless we have to.
  6. We sell most items within 6 to 8 weeks
    To complete the sale of items quickly, we have a 6 to 8 week turnaround for most items.

Our process for deceased or living estate auctions

To make the deceased or living estate clearance as smooth as possible, we will consult with you about your objectives, priorities, and circumstances to create a customised approach, which always respects the legacy of your loved one.

This is our full process for deceased or living estate auctions.

  1. We will consult with you about the estate
    Our first conversation allows us to familiarise ourselves with your situation. It usually takes between 10 to 20 minutes, and gives us a clear idea of how we can help with the property and its possessions.
  2. We will develop a customised service outline and quotation
    Our service outline includes our process for the property clearance, what we do with items in the home, and if necessary, how to prepare the property for sale.
  3. We will clear the property
    Once you confirm acceptance of service outline and quotation, we will arrange to collect the property’s keys, and get to work. This process usually takes between 3 to 5 days, and we will update you along the way.
  4. We will sell the items
    After the property is clear, every item that is cost effective to sell will be sold through the most effective sales channel, giving you the best result for every item.
  5. We will provide a full breakdown of sales, and transfer the final amount to you
    At the end of each month, we will transfer the funds for any items sold for that month. We can also provide an itemised catalogue of items sold, if required.
