Hi Kathy, I'm so sorry to hear this. What a sad thing to find yourself facing. It's very stressful to have to do this on your own. Trust me, I know. I've been an estate liquidator for 18 years now.
First tell me where in the country you are located? Secondly, most estate services in my area of MI do not charge you anything to do the work. We just charge a percentage of the total gross amount earned from the sale. So, that may ease your mind a bit.
Secondly, I think the biggest problem you are going to have is living in the home while trying to do a sale. Personally I will not take those jobs. It's just to difficult mostly for the persons living in the home, but it's very rough on liquidators to, because then space is severely limited.
I may have a few other ideas though. Let me know where your located and I'll see if I can help a bit.
