Cherish Estate Sales, which held its first sale June 7, sells items left in a household due to events such as a death, a move to an assisted-living facility or a divorce.
“We go in and clean the house and make it presentable, and then we price everything,” said Reba Corder, who co-owns the family business with four others. “Then whatever’s left at the end of the sale, we do whatever they ask us to do. We either donate it all or clean it out or leave it there and ... [the homeowner or real estate company] handle[s] it.”
Corder said when Cherish schedules an estate sale, which typically lasts 3-4 days, the event is advertised in advance on two websites: www.estatesales.com and www.estatesales.org.
