Household Auctions

The tri-state area leader in Online Estate Sale Auctions.

Household Auctions is a New Jersey based online estate sale auctions company founded by experienced Fortune 500 and early startup execs who simply desire to provide an honest, transparent and reliable solution to sell a collection of items. You have our assurance that the sale of your items, from site visit to receiving your check, will run exactly as promised.
There are many estate sale companies out there, we know. Here's what sets us apart:
  • All bidding starts at $1. That's right, no matter the item, no matter the size, everything starts at $1.
  • No reserves on any auctions. We must be crazy! Not only do we start bidding at $1, we have no reserves.
  • No buyer's premiums. We won't charge you anything extra! (Except for tax, we must charge that.)
  • Transparency. At any time you can see how the bidding progresses, we have nothing to hide.
