Spring is Estate Sale Season

Spring cherry blossomsHave you noticed the number of estate sales or tag sales taking place currently? If not take a look on EstateSales.Net or EstateSales.org and look in your state. The volume of sales keeps rising as baby boomers retire and move or downsize. Right now Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas and Northern New Jersey seem to be the most active.

Some estate sales companies are conducting multiple estate sales during one weekend.  The growth in this industry is tremendous. New companies are starting up every week.

Whether you are looking for furniture, cars, household goods, clothing, art, jewelry or even garden items (it is after all spring) you will find them for sale this coming weekend somewhere. One company recently sold 4 cars at one sale all owned by the owner. One car came close to being a classic for age.

If you are considering having an estate sale now is the time to act and look for estate liquidators, make the calls and set up the interviews. Many companies are booked up to a month or more out so if you have a particular estate sale company in mind don’t delay.
