Anything in the house at the time of the auction belongs to the estate. The person who wins the house also wins anything in the house at the time. * If the question refers to a foreclosure then the answer is no, personal items and household furnishings are not a part of a foreclosure sale. If it pertains to an estate, the state probate laws govern what property is exempt and what is not.
