There are thousands of ways you can take items found at estate sales and flip them online, we aren’t going to get into the second phase of the flip, which is finding the mechanism to resell our items.

The 5 most profitable item categories found on MaxSold


Because a lot of our auctions consist of household items from family and relatives that have either passed on, or downsizing into a smaller home, there are plenty of really nice jewelry pieces that go unwanted. These items consist of antique Rolex watches, vintage gold and silver, earrings, necklaces and so much more. Every week we had new auctions loaded with some really nice hidden gems that can be flipped for profit very easily.


A lot of the time when someone inherits an estate they don’t really realize how much something is worth. It’s not their fault and 9 out of 10 times they don’t really care, they just need it gone so they can do what they will with the house. This is a huge advantage for buyers on MaxSold, because there are a lot of really nice antique items that can be found at really reasonable prices compared to most consignment or antique shops. Antiques are one of the best things to sell from home because they can be moved pretty fast after purchasing given the amount of antique dealers and communities online.

Books, Records & Other Collectibles

Marketplaces like Amazon make it easy for you to sell books and records online, but there are still some very busy bricks and mortar retailers who will pay top dollar for books and records as well. Classic LPs are coming back in a big way and finding rare and high-quality copies are hard to come by. Finding collectibles on MaxSold is easy too! Whether it’s someone’s childhood baseball card collection or a rare toy train set, our auctions are jam packed with items people collect, store and value.

If you’ve ever thought “hey, I wonder what estate sales near me have up for grabs”, or are thinking that now, head over to our Quick Worth Finder tool to search through items that have been sold on our site to see what things went for and get an understanding of the items we have on our site that you can flip for profit.
