Typically if you are looking to liquidate an entire household you will have enough items to warrant a full 2 day estate sale. Average household being a minimum of 2 bedrooms, living area, kitchen etc. However despite the size of the house, we usually recommend that there be at least $4,000 worth of sellable items. These items should be a good mix of everyday household items (small appliances, electronics, cleaning supplies, books, clothes, etc.), furniture, tools or yard items, decorator items (mirrors, candlesticks, artwork), table and bed linens, kitchenware, collector items or antiques.
