The City of Dearborn requires that all residents wishing to host a garage or yard sale obtain a permit to do so, issued by the City Clerk's office. The permit is valid for 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.
When applying for a garage sale license residents now have the option to advertise on the city's website for an additional $10. Advertising is in the form of a public Google map highlighting the location of the garage sale with information on what is for sale. The location will be posted no more than seven days before the last day of the sale.
