The article appears to have been written with assistance from two of the three major estate sale advertising listing sites as they were mentioned and linked in the ad. Realtors now giving advice on estate sale business without experience. There is no mention of estate liquidation experience from the real estate company.

Collecting sales tax at estate sales is necessary unless the state the sale is being conducted in exempts estate sales from sales tax. For example Florida and California collect sales tax, New Jersey does not.

When Rocky Scott moved his family to Orange County, the overstuffed, bulky furniture that looked so right at home in Tennessee suddenly looked so wrong.

It wasn’t just the rustic style, perfect for a 7,000-square-foot house in the mountains. In sunny Southern California, the Scotts had moved into a 5,000-square-foot rental, then bought a place about half that size.

“We didn’t want to go through the aggravation and the risk of running our own sort of yard sale,” said Scott, a 46-year-old information technology executive. “It was just too much stuff. We didn’t want to manage people running in and out of the house.”

They decided to hold an estate sale.
