You can spend your own time sorting through every item, pricing everything out for your estate sale, selling things or throwing them out as seems correct at the time, but there may be valuable items that are sold for too little, or worse yet, lost. It is amazing that some things actually have collectible value. (Warning: your two weeks off your regular employment schedule may not be long enough when preparing a property for resale.)
You get hire a disposal company to come in and clear out your estate. There are many responsible contractors that think green, recycling wherever they can as they haul your stuff to the landfill. Of course you remove anything of value before the disposal starts, because when it’s gone, it’s gone!
You hire an auction house to come and take your items to auction. There will be costs for moving your belongings to the auction, a 40% commission on all sales, and more costs for moving the items that don’t sell back to your place. Auction houses don’t take everything in the estate, either, only the things they think they can sell. Refer to option two, above.
