How It Works

We create a personalized temporary webpage for your situation. Your web page will have a URL like this: www.cricketsell.me/anyname-youchoose.  You use that specific URL web link to market your sale.  Don’t worry. We do all the technical stuff!

Questions and Answers

A temporary personalized web page provides an opportunity to sell your house or furniture without giving out your address until someone is interested in buying. You still have all the options of having an onsite estate sale or an open house, but having a web page keeps you more control over who’s coming into your house and when, helps you find serious buyers, and expands your marketing reach beyond a street sign.

First, we need to make some decisions on what you’re doing and when you’re doing it. What’s your time frame? How many photos will you have? Do you need someone to take the photos for you? How else can we help you? If it’s an estate sale, do you need help moving things, staging things, cleaning, disposal afterward? We can help with all that at a much lower cost than an estate liquidator.

After we sort out some details, I collect your photos from you (or arrange to have them taken for you) then I start building your personalized web page.

After the page is complete, you’re ready to go. You will have your own URL (that’s a website address) for 30 days.

It works basically the same way regardless of who you are and what you want to sell, but your webpage might look a little bit different. You can sell the house separately and post all the pictures, as well as offer the estate sale items at the same time. It’s a way to add services to your clients, particularly those who may be out of state. You have more control over the entire process of the house and its contents.

There’s no doubt that some people just like going to estate and moving sales. For many in this area it’s simply a way to get out of the house and do something for the day and that’s great. But not everyone. Some people prefer to shop, at least initially, ONLINE at their leisure in the safety and comfort of their own home. These people tend to be more serious shoppers. 

It takes a certain amount of time to format and propagate a web page particularly when there are multiple photos involved. There’s a lot of “tweaking” and design elements that have to be manually adjusted. For that reason, there are no refunds but you’ll find the cost for the web page pretty reasonable.

You don’t have to do anything with the technology, we do it all. Web pages can be quite confusing even though there are sites that will tell you that it’s so simple. Putting up your own web page can be confusing at the least, as well as expensive to start and maintain. We’ve been doing website design,  implementation and maintenance for three decades and it’s actually become more complicated. But you don’t have to do anything with that. We can help you with everything you need to host your own estate sale, sell your house by owner, or host a street fair or church Bazaar.

Selling your house by owner means marketing your house yourself. The typical way of doing that is putting a sign in the yard and putting an ad in the local paper. We still recommend doing that. However, there’s another step that can help expand your marketing reach and make it safer for you as the homeowner.

Instead of putting your address in the newspaper classifieds just put your web link. It’s safer and allows YOU to be in control of who comes to your home and when. Of course, you could also post that same web link on Facebook or on Next Door or anywhere else you choose.

How does it work? People see your newspaper ad and go to your web page and instead of calling you or dropping by your house unannounced, they use the contact form on your web page. They provide their email and phone and a message. Based on the message they leave; you decide whether you want to call them back.

We start with the consultation to understand what your needs are. So, use the contact form on this page and we’ll start there.
