Definition of Estate Sale:
Orange County, California Estate Sales:
This is a sale (Orange County real estate sale for this definition) that happens when the homeowner dies or moves to an assisted-living facility, and it is always handled by a professional estate sales company, if the owner named someone directly in the will. The people who were named in the will who inherit the home get the proceeds from the sale. If the owner dies without naming someone in the will to sell the house, an estate sale is in turn called a probate sale, because a probate court appoints a relative or friend of the deceased to handle the sale.
