Local Estate Sales – Newspapers

Most newspapers have significantly reduced their print distribution in favor of online publications. In small cities, however, daily or weekly newspapers are still prevalent. These local newspapers typically maintain a decent online presence as well.


Check the classified section of your local daily printed newspaper on the day before the sale. Most estate sales, also known as “estate auctions,” “tag sales,” or “moving sales,” begin on Friday, so check Thursday’s paper.

Most papers are published on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. These publications should allow you to find most upcoming estate sale listings before the weekend.

Online News

Your local paper typically offers classified ads online as well. Look for the local estate sales advertisements in the days leading up to the sale, specifically on the Thursday before. If the paper only publishes online once a week, the ads should be available on publication date.

Community Bulletins

Bulletin boards are not as popular as they used to be, but in some neighborhoods, they still play a small role in advertising estate sales. When you visit a grocery store, library, or any other popular local venue, look for the bulletin board to discover any local estate sale listings.
