6 Tips For a Successful Garage Sale
Try these 6 tips for a successful garage sale next time you want to make some extra cash:

  • If you are planning to hold a garage sale, start by searching through your home and picking out personal possessions that you no longer use. As a rough guideline, if you have not used something in a year, you can probably sell it without causing future complications.
  • Make sure to label each item with a price tag to reduce the amount of work that you will have to do for each sale. If you are willing to bargain, create a sign to tell people that the price tags are guidelines rather than set in stone.
  • Create a list of the items that you are planning to sell. Furthermore, make sure to list a range of sale prices that you would be willing to accept beside each item. Doing so ensures that you will not be caught off-guard if someone asks to buy something that has lost its price tag.
  • When assigning sale prices, you need to balance your desire to get rid of the item with your desire to recoup its cost. The lower your prices, the faster your items will sell. However, if something is either valuable or close to mint condition, you may want to hold out for a better offer.
  • Depending on where you live, there may be rules and regulations regarding garage sales. Make sure to research these rules well before your sale to make sure you don’t get shut down early or fined.

Finally, you need to make sure that people hear about your garage sale. Fortunately, you have a number of convenient places to advertise, from local papers to social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. You may also want to place an ad on Craigslist to attract more buyers.
