Property varies from sale to sale but may include: household items, appliances, antiques, collectibles, jewelry, coins, art, tools, computer equipment, vehicles including cars, vans, light duty trucks, motorcycles and motor homes.
Proceeds from the auction are returned to the individual estates in which the assets originated. Monies earned by decedent estates are distributed to the decedent's heirs or beneficiaries. Funds earned by conservatorship estates are used to pay for pay for housing, medical care and other personal needs for frail and elderly citizens who have been found by the Court to be unable to provide for their own care.
