How It Works

EXAMPLE 1
CLIENT A has requested an estate sale only but the contents of the home do not merit the 100% home liquidation costs.

Scenario 1
Client A hires Kept House to create the marketing campaign, promote and facilitate the execution of the estate sale. Client A and Kept House agree to a 50/50 split of the proceeds. Kept House requires a $500 service fee to create the campaign and host the sale. The sale makes $4,000. Kept House delivers a check to Client A for $2,000.

Scenario 2
Client A hires Kept House to create the marketing campaign, promote and facilitate the execution of the estate sale. Client A and Kept House agree to a 50/50 split of the proceeds. Client A also wants home completely cleared in order to sell. Client A and Kept House agree to an additional $250 fee to manage the clear out process post-sale. Kept House requires a $500 service fee to create the campaign and host the sale. The sale makes $4,000. Kept House delivers a check to Client A for $2,000. Afterwards, Kept House manages the clear out process including donations and hauling junk. Because we partner with several donation centers locally, regionally and nationally, we always do our best to minimize the clear out costs incurred by our client.

EXAMPLE 2
CLIENT A has requested the full-service package, which amounts to $4000.

Scenario 1
The estate sale makes $20,000. Because Client A made an up front payment of $1,000, Client A receives a $13,000 check ($20,000 x %60 = $12,000 + $1,000 up front payment).

Scenario 2
The estate sale makes $8,000. Kept House is paid $4,000 out of the estate sale proceeds to cover full-service package costs, and Client A receives 60% of remaining $4,000 profit. Because Client A made an up front payment of $1,000, Client A receives a $3,400 check ($4,000 x %60 = $2,400 + $1,000 up front payment).

Scenario 3
The estate sale makes $1,000. Because of our $4,000 floor cost, Kept House keeps the proceeds from the sale, as well as the client’s up front deposit of $1,000.

Client A is responsible for the remaining $2,000 balance.
