An estate sale, sometimes known as a tag sale, and sometimes operated as an estate auction, is the sale of everything inside a house. The sales are often held to clean out the house of someone who has died, but many sellers are simply looking to downsize from a big house or start over with new furniture. No matter the seller’s motivation, most buyers find that estate sales are a great way to get a good deal on household items. One of the best ways to find out about estate sales all over the country is EstateSales.NET, based in Jackson, Mo. For more on this topic, visit our sister site, Living on the Cheap.
