Boost Your Garage Sale Profits By Gauging Interest In Items Beforehand

Get More Money from Your Garage Sale by Gauging Interest in Items Before the Sale

Summer is on its way and with it, garage sales. If you want to get rid of more stuff and also price them appropriately, try this trick: Ask people to email you about items they're interested in.

As Lucas Moore explains, you post the same garage sale ad on Gumtree as you normally would, but also post specific items in categories like "furniture for sale":

I told people to email me with the items they were interested in, with a price. This way I knew what were the most popular items and the prices people were willing to pay. This helped with bartering during the sale, but also gave me a list to go back to when certain items didn't sell.

The beauty of this tactic is that after the garage sale if some popular items didn't sell, you could have people to email to sell those items individually.

Ready to rock your own garage sale and finally get rid of things while making money? Creating an email interest list might make it a bit easier.
