Answer: Generally, we ask that you not be there during the sale. During the sale, often negotiations must occur with buyers in order to sell your items. This can prove to be an emotional experience for sellers and we ask that you let us do this when you are gone from the property. Generally, we clear out 95% of the belongings during the sale, so there usually aren't any furnishings to come back to. Staying at a hotel or your new residence or with friends is preferable.
