Searching for the hard-to-find item and not having much luck? Exploring an estate sale could be a great alternative to local consignment shops or online auctions. Estate sales typically involve a fast liquidation of all items in a home and can be a great place to purchase rare, unique, or hard-to-find items.
There are a number of resources available online to help you locate estate sales in Seattle and beyond. Check out the resources below to find an estate sale happening near you.
Finding Local Estate Sales Online
Estatesales.net is a great source for all the information you need to find estate sales. You can use the estate sales finder tool to filter by state or by zip code to locate sales happening in your area. Each sale has an individual listing where you can find the sale dates, times, location, and more information about the company facilitating the sale. This information can help you know exactly what to expect out of each sale you are going to and is a great place to prepare by knowing what you want, and the rules of the sale before you get there.
Estatesales.com is another great source. Their easy-to-use search tool can quickly find nearby sales. Just like Estatesales.net, you can search by date, location, and more, to find the best local estate sales.
Local Estate Sale Companies
In addition to larger sites like Estatesales.net, there are numerous local estate sale companies that facilitate Seattle-area estate sales and list upcoming events on their websites. By going directly to the company’s website, you are often able to see additional helpful resources to help you be prepared to shop such as methods of payment accepted, and sales rules. Many websites also allow you to subscribe to receive email alerts to learn when new sales are happening.
When checking local company’s websites for upcoming estate sales, make sure you have the date information listed correctly in your search, as smaller websites tend to not be updated as frequently as larger directories. Check the reviews and reputation of the company hosting the sale, as not all have the same dedication to hosting high-quality sales.
