After years of conducting Estate Liquidations, we get asked some common questions. Check them out below to find some helpful answers.
First-time shopper? We’ve got you covered
A typical garage sale consists of a collection of discarded items dispersed around a lawn or stacked on tarps and tables in a garage. On the other hand, an estate sale takes place in the home itself. Consider it a sort of pop-up retail experience, replete with a large range of merchandise. Here at Estate Sales By Jesod, we have been known to offer everything from your average everyday household item to antiques, vehicles, firearms, coin collections, and mid-century furniture. You never know what you’re going to come across!

First-time shopper Tips & Tricks
Make a list of the things you want and need and write them down. Perhaps you’re a reseller who knows right away what you’ll want to look for. Make that the first item on your to-do list. Would a mid-century piece of furniture look better next to your dining room table? Looking to replace that big hutch taking up space in your dining room. Although you may not find everything on your list, having some guidance, especially at the beginning, can be beneficial.
You don’t want anything to stand in the way of you and your estate sale treasures! Have a bite to eat before going to the sale, and make sure you use the restroom. Seasoned shoppers are aware that there is no guarantee that one will be available during the sale.
You’ll also need the appropriate equipment. If you plan on inspecting jewels, coins, or artwork, bring a loupe. Take the measurements of your home and a measuring tape with you so you can buy with confidence. If you’re thinking about buying something big, be sure you have access to a vehicle with enough cargo space. It’s also a good idea to keep food and water in the car for a post-sale pick-me-up.
Dress comfortably. Jeans, sweats, sneakers, etc. You may find yourself having to dig for items or possibly entering some barns or garages that may be cluttered. Shoes or boots are also a fantastic option, especially for farmhouse sales. If you’re shopping for clothes, putting on a fitting layer of some sort will allow you to try on products over your existing ones to see how they fit.
You might feel good about shopping at an estate sale since you’re giving someone’s valuables a new lease on life. Take it from us: there are few feelings more satisfying than discovering something unique and giving it a new home. Not only that but going to estate sales is a good thing for the environment and your wallet. It’s very satisfying to know that, in addition to assisting with the emptying of a home, you’re also contributing to the financial well-being of a local family!
Estate Sale ( Frequently asked questions )
An Estate Sale, also known as a Tag Sale, is the liquidation of an estate’s belongings in preparation for a move, downsizing, household merging, or the loss of a loved one. They take place in someone’s home and are of greater quality than a “garage sale.” The real objects in the property, such as couches, dining room sets, and bedroom suites, as well as glassware, knick-knacks, and collectibles, are sold at estate sales. We sell garage items, yard objects, cellar items, and so on. At an estate sale, anything in the house can be sold. We even sell the automobiles, firearms, and Gold and Silver.
For a no-cost, no-obligation consultation, please contact us. We can walk you through the procedure and answer any questions you might have.
