Our thanks to diginColorado for sharing this video. If you are currently looking to remodel or retro your home you may want to check out the 4 sales on EstateSales.Net. You might also want to look at EstateSales.org, EstateSale.com or TagSellit.com.

Tear Downs occur all across the country and it can be an excellent source for doors, windows, cabinets, counter tops, appliances, and many other things.

When Estate Sales News visited EstateSales.Net I had the opportunity to see the building dating from the 1800’s that Dan and Dot McQuade have renovated and restored. An article on that will be upcoming, however, it should be noted that Dan visited estate sales in several states over several years salvaging doors, cabinets, an old refrigerator and even a enamel 1920’s stove. There is no telling what you can do with some sweat equity and imagination.

When Times Get Tough – Estate Sales Can Be A Solution

New Jersey Life articleWith the roller coaster ride the economy has been on the one steady course that has actually seen and increase in business is estate sales.

Although some areas have seen the value of some items decrease somewhat, (not all by any means) more and more people are using an estate sale (whether for a living person or deceased) to sell their personal property. The number of estate sale companies across the country has tripled in the last 3 years.

Estate sales offer opportunities to buy at reasonable prices, many times without sales tax (depending on the state), and items from A-Z.

The estate liquidation business has also provided income for unemployed people and offered some folks that always wanted to be their own boss the opportunity to do so.

The term estate sale has become a rubber stamp for moving sale, tag sale, house sale as well as selling the property of a deceased person. In any case this once cottage industry has become a booming industry in almost every state.

In Los Angeles there are over 19,00 subscribers, in Chicago over 28,500 and in northern New Jersey over 22,000. Those are only 3 areas among thousands.
