Realtor offering to run estate sale for parents' belongings
We are moving our parents into assisted living this month. They have a large rundown house full of a lifetime's worth of furniture and junk. One realtor offered to run the estate sale, haul the junk, and pay the contractor to fix things up, with the idea that they will recoup their investment in a higher sale value. This would take a big burden off of us, but it also sounds too good to be true. Is it a good deal? What should we be looking out for?
