How to find estate sales in your area
The first step to take when looking for an estate sale is to make a checklist of things that you want to buy. This can be anything from old furniture, collectibles, antiques, and even clothing. You should also think about what type of items would be perfect for the room in your house where they will be placed after buying them. For example, if you are looking for furniture then you might want to look at couches, chairs, and coffee tables and start measuring your space to make sure you know where the items you purchase will fit.
Once you have made your checklist, the next step is to start looking for estate sales in your area. You can do this in a number of ways. One way is to look through your local newspaper, often these will be found in the classified section of the paper. The best way is to look online, this way you can see photos of all the items in the estate sale before you go to make sure it has items that you would be interested in. The best sites for estate sales are Estatesales.NET, Estatesale.com, Estatesales.org we post our sales on each of those sites and will have full descriptions and photos of what will be included in the sale.
When shopping at estate sales, you should always remember that the estate sale company usually has one weekend to sell all the items in the home and while there are usually standard discounts on the items every day, you can also make offers on items if they are out of your price range. The best way to do this is to respectfully ask if they accept offers on items. The most negotiable items are usually furniture and larger pieces as these are often harder to sell.
Estate Saling is a great pastime and a super fun way to spend a weekend with family or friends. View all of our estate sales here: aaronsestatesales.com/upcoming
