Then I called an Estate Auction company.

Eventually, a similar company will be contacted. The problems at this time is finding some family jewelry. Not worth much but I would like to find our parents wedding rings and a few other things. Another problem is there is still a missing handgun.

The pet damage is such that an on site estate sale is not an option. Not certain if an estate auction company would take stuff for an off-site sale. On site is not an option.

Our county is slow on responding to probate requests. The court date to open probate is still a couple of months out. Knowing that has someone decreased the stress. It will be mid-May before I can get serious about inspections, repair, and sale. Average time on market is 11 days. I have contracted with the real estate agent that previously sold a property for us. It has been calming to know that once the is empty, it should less than 3 weeks to have the interior cleaned, painted, and new flooring. I believe I have an outline for getting the property sold. I wouldn't call it a plan yet.
