Garage and Estate sale season is in full swing, and the City of Dearborn wants to ensure that individuals know about a new feature this year intended to help residents advertise and for anyone interested to locate the garage and estate sales within the city limits. This service is available year-round for sales that also take place indoors.

Sellers have the option of advertising their garage sale on the city’s website for $10. It will be posted in the form of a Google map with the location of the garage sale highlighted and information about the items available. The map can be found on the homepage of the city’s website at and at this link:

A permit must be obtained from the City Clerk’s Office in order to host a garage sale, and it is valid for up to three consecutive days.

Residents may hold a maximum of four garage sales per year. The cost is $10 for the first permit; $15 for the second; $20 for the third and $25 for the fourth within the same calendar year.

Residents are reminded to be aware of their Public Service Day while hosting a garage sale, as it may cause parking issues for potential customers who may not know that it is that neighborhood’s Public Service Day.

A printable application form can be located online at This form can either be mailed to the Clerk’s Office or dropped off during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.– 5 p.m.

For more information, please call the City Clerk’s Office at 313-943-2010.
