There is no out-of-pocket expense. Hidden Treasures pays for all related expenses until the sale is complete. We are reimbursed based on the gross receipts of the estate sale. After estimating the anticipated monetary success of your estate sale, we will define the percentage of commission that will be paid to Hidden Treasures. The variables of calculating this commission can include, but are not limited to the following:

    • Difficulty of project

    • Time required to complete the project

    • Defining the value of items including researching hard-to-price pieces

    • Marketing and advertising depending on the season and competition

    • Size of the property and amount of items

    • Staff needed to complete a successful sale

  • Depth of cleanup, cleanout, and deliveries


Even though holding an estate sale is time consuming in the preparation stages, that’s what Hidden Treasures considers to be its overriding strength. From the time a contract is signed, a successful sale can be completed within 7 to 10 days.
