An Estate Sale, also called a Tag Sale in some parts of the
country, is a way of liquidating the belongings of a family or estate. These
are usually much more than garage or yard sales. They are used when someone is
in need of a way to sell items due to downsizing, moving, divorce, bankruptcy, or
death. The public is invited into the home and given the opportunity to purchase
any item that is priced for sale. At times there are items that are not for sale
because the family has decided to keep them or new owners of the house have made
them part of a contract to buy the house. Estate Auctions are where everything
is auctioned instead of being marked with a selling price.
There is such a thing as Estate Sale Etiquette.
Some companies use a Number System, and they usually have some sort of policy concerning this, so
be sure to check with the individual companies for their
rules. There are also companies that use the Self Start Number System.
This type of system is vulnerable to many abuses, and companies that use this
system usually do have a strict policy on how they are handled.
Sign-up Sheets are also used and are similar to self-start numbering.
Again, there is a chance of abuse here too. Some companies allow everyone in line to
enter the sale, and others have limited access.
