Estate sale contracts vary from company to company, but no matter how many sales you conduct, your contract is your most important document. In fact, your entire business—and reputation—depends on it. And while your contract should always evolve, when you’re starting an estate sale company, you just need to start somewhere. The estate sale contract outlines in writing the agreements and responsibilities of parties involved. You as the hiring party, and the estate liquidator or company hired to perform the sale. An estate sale contract is necessary because a verbal agreement is not enough to protect anyone. Estate sale contracts are imperative when conducting any type of estate sale. This document essentially outlines the agreements and responsibilities of both parties in writing. Reputable companies provide professional estate services, and based on the agreements outlined in the contract, the client will know exactly what they can expect.
