How many estate sales do you see in a year in your area?

This will of course depend on your population base as much as anything else.

In my immediate area I would say we have 2 to 10 a month with usual rate being about 4 or 5. That would be in just a 40 mile radius. Expanding that out it would go up quite a bit but be a bit of a drive.

There are probably 20 estate sales a month around here. Within a 20 mile radius. However, "estate sale" has become a hit term.. meaning that people are really just having garage sales and calling them estate sales.

In my area, which I think of as 'I can go to them just as I'm doing other stuff', there are 2-3 per week.  Up the radius to 20-ish miles and its around 7-10.  99% run by estate sale services. In the past three months there has only been 4-5 run by private party.  (That's off service listings, CL has a greater number of estates that are really garage sales)

I go to an average of 8-10 per month.  Tho, that will go down here soon.  With bad weather, holidays and cheap labor going back to school the estate companies slow down this time of year.

Like MM said, population is a factor.  I'm close to three of the five most populated areas of the state.  You would actually think there should be more....?
