BEFORE YOU SIGN ON THAT DOTTED LINE . . .

By: Matt McNeil On: September 23, 2016

Selling items or giving away items before an estate sale after you’ve signed a contract with a professional estate liquidator or licensed auctioneer?

It’s not only unethical, as you’ve already signed an agreement to sell nothing, nor to give it away prior to the liquidator starting work, but it can also lead to canceled sales — and even legal action.

Yup – this can cost you money.
No doubt about it.

Remember: commission attaches when you sign on the dotted line.

Take something out of the sale’s inventory after you’ve signed a contract and BOOM! you now owe full commission on whatever you removed.

In other cases, the liquidator may decide to simply cancel the contract altogether since a) essential trust between the seller and liquidator has been broken, and/or b) the piece you took back or sold or gave away may have been deemed crucial to the sale’s success.

Understand that when you sign an estate sale contract, you’re signing a fully binding, legally valid document, and that the liquidator who agreed to conduct your sale did so based upon the items he or she was told would be for sale. THIS IS NO TIME FOR “BAIT & SWITCH” TACTICS ON THE SELLER’S PART.

The liquidator whom you hired has given up two to three crucial weeks on his or her calendar to make room for your sale, and has thus cut out the possibility to take other work in that same time frame.

Furthermore, average labor and advertising costs alone can run a liquidator thousands of dollars in pre-sale expenses – all out of his or her pocket.

In addition, remember that, if your home is for sale, potential home buyers who want to buy any of your personal property will need to go through the liquidator you’ve signed with, NOT the realtor.

It’s lamentable but undeniable that many realtors out there fail to understand just what a fine kettle of fish they’re opening up when they start entangling the home sale with the sale of personal property, and – furthermore – just how much serious tort conflict they may be bringing on themselves by doing so, especially if the liquidator’s contract pre-dates the realtor’s contract.

Furthermore, realtors don’t receive any commission on the personal property sold, and often lack fundamental understanding of what a great deal of personal property actually sells for on the secondary market. (We don’t sell real estate, and realtors have no business selling personal property.)

Additionally, the mortgage company doesn’t factor personal property into the appraised value of the home. (On the contrary, it’s loaning money solely upon a real estate appraisal.)

Finally, it’s long been our experience that home buyers are often prone to ask for “sweetheart deals” on the personal property therein, thus cutting the seller out of potential dollars.

Trust us when we say that, if your home is truly worth what you’re asking for it, there’s no need to “throw in” personal property on top of the real estate, ESPECIALLY if there’s a contract with a liquidator already involved. (It’s simply not worth the important trust you have established with your liquidator, nor is it worth the legal costs that may ensue should you breach your end of the bargain.)

Unsure about what to do once you’ve signed a contract with a professional estate liquidator or licensed auctioneer?

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at (405) 820-2814.

We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.

Is there anything you DON’T sell, Matt?

By: Matt McNeil On: August 17, 2016

Yup.
You bet your sweet bippy that there are things in the estates we liquidate that we just don’t sell and, well, WON’T sell.

First off, we don’t sell food. (Selling food carries high liability; furthermore, we don’t have a grocer’s license.)

We also don’t sell liquor. (That’s a given, and no one wants to tangle with the A.B.L.E. Commission.)

We don’t sell pornography. (Although, that last bit said, we do occasionally sell erotica. I make an Oliver Wendell Holmes judgment call in those cases. I never forget that we’re smack dab in the buckle of the Bible Belt and — everything else aside — I’d rather not offend the sensibilities of a good chunk of my loyal customers just so I can make the paltry commission that a couple of boxes full of wrinkled old Penthouse magazines might bring.)

As a general rule, we no longer sell household chemicals. (Yes, we used to. But no longer.) Rather, we give these items away to the public on sale mornings before the doors open ON THE CONDITION THAT no food products nor household chemicals be brought into the sale in question. (It’s simply not worth someone spilling a bottle of bleach, nor getting a nasty chemical burn, or whatever. It’s just not worth the tiny bit of revenue raised for both the client and the liquidator alike. Trust me.)

Most magazines go directly into the bin, as they have little to no value. Also, it’s a given that most encyclopedia sets, common textbooks, and Reader’s Digest Condensed Books find their new homes in landfills. (Even charities such as Friends of the Oklahoma City Library won’t take these singularly unsalable things after the sale. Sorry. Facts are facts, folks.) Naturally, though, we DO recycle whatever we can.

We don’t sell medical equipment; we donate it to a local hospice. (You want those Sani-Pads, that hospital bed, or those cases full of new colostomy bags? Knock yourself out, kiddo. They’re all yours.)

We don’t sell anything that’s illegal to sell, whether on the state or Federal level. (Examples include, but are not limited to automatic weapons, elephant ivory over the newly established de minimis exceptions, certain game trophies prohibited from sale by Oklahoma law, et cetera.)

We skirt Oklahoma law on used bedding (it’s illegal here to sell used bedding that hasn’t been re-conditioned) by allowing customers to take the mattresses and box springs (should they want them) that match headboards or footboards or frames they’ve already purchased.

We don’t sell items that are in flagrantly bad taste. (For example, we helped P.E.L. prep a sale in NW OKC’s Rock Knoll neighborhood a few years back. The client was from Monroe, Louisiana, and possessed a child’s Ku Klux Klan robe from the turn of the last century. We opted to broker the — admittedly valuable but patently tasteless — item through a high end auction house in New Orleans, and thus avoid offending a great many (if not most!) of our patrons. Again, sometimes it’s just a judgment call we have to make, and on a case by case basis.)

We don’t sell used lingerie, nor underwear of any kind. (It’s nasty; it’s illegal in Oklahoma. Oh, and it’s in insanely poor taste to sell such items.)

So yes.
I think I covered all the bases, but I may have missed one or two minor things along the way.

Naturally, we’re happy to put back items that we won’t sell so that you may dispose of them as you see fit; we have “no dog in the fight” when it comes to, well, crap we won’t sell. All we ask is that you, the client, promptly pick up the dross we put back for you in the “don’t sell but don’t throw away” pile.

I hope this little blog entry has been of assistance.
