Some estates are clean and easy.
Some are not.
The challange sometimes is a "Hoarders" Estate. First, let me say that this is not a opinion or mind set, but a illness based on the evidence left behind.
The owner of the house got overwhelmed. She had the contents of her house (which was full) and then instead of a having a sale at her gift shop, moved the contents of her store into her house after closing it. There were rooms of storage, rooms buried under storage and pathways.
This is what we do.
We organized all items, matched all the items with their boxes and catagorized.
Cleared all rooms of trash, paperwork and misc.
Owner decided to keep the following items:
Both Bedroom Sets, Dining room suite, living room suite, living room desk/chair, living room chandelier, living room lamps, victorian dresser, large fountain and other items pictured at end...
Here is what it looked like when both sales were over.
