Garage/Estate Sales

Garage sales and estate sales do not require a permit, but residents must follow these rules:

  • No more than two sales on the same premises in any one calendar year.
  • One garage sale sign may be placed on private property, avoiding the public right-of-way (approximately 10 feet from the curb). Additional signs may be placed on a neighbors property with owners permission, again avoiding the right-of-way. Signs placed on public street lights, utility poles, trees, hydrants, medians, or city-owned property, or street signs are prohibited and may be removed by City officials. Signs must be removed immediately upon the completion of the sale.
  • Sales are held by a person who does not hold himself out as engaging in, or does not habitually engage in, the business of selling such property at retail.
  • No new merchandise acquired solely for the purpose of resale may be sold at the garage/estate sale.
  • Sales may last no more than three consecutive calendar days.
