Q: What is an Estate Sale?
A: An estate sale is the liquidation of a home's entire contents,
often due to the illness or passing of a loved one. Hospitalization or long term care can be very expensive; in some cases
an estate sale may be necessary as a means to help pay for these costs. In the broader sense, estate sale services may be
used by individuals who are moving, or empty nesters who are simply downsizing. Typically, an Estate Sale will be conducted
over a two or three day period depending on the size and contents.

Q: What's the difference between an Estate Sale and garage
A: In a garage sale, the owner typically
chooses to rid themselves of unwanted items and puts them up for sale. Items range from children’s cast off toys and
clothing to used miscellaneous furniture. This is contained outside within the garage and driveway..... Estate Sales are the sale of the
entire contents within an estate. In many ways they are representative of someone’s life; the lifelong possessions of
a person’s parents or grandparents. Characteristically, it is more out of necessity than a person’s want or choosing.
As a rule, they are conducted by professionals contracted by the family or executors.
