  • The term Tag Sale / Estate Sale generally refers to the sale of personal property, i.e. furniture, appliances, china, books, linens, etc. It differs from a garage sale in that it involves the entire or part of the contents of a household and is held inside the home. Such a sale may be needed after a loved one has passed away, moved to an assisted living facility, a nursing home, downsizing or moving from your current home, divorce or any other lifestyle change. In such emotional & stressful circumstances, we know how difficult it can be to sort out the entire contents of a home often accumulated over the course of a lifetime. It can be even more daunting to decide what to do with everything else after the family has removed items of sentimental value.
