Tips For A Successful Estate Sale

There are many ways that people can selloff things like furniture, clothing and household goods. Entire websites and smart phone apps a dedicated to this purpose. However, those are hit and miss because you don’t know when someone will see your post or if what you have is what they’re looking for. A better approach would be to set up an estate sale.

Advertise

It is important that you let folks know you are throwing an estate sale. The big difference between an estate sale at a yard sale is that they are held indoors which means they can happen rain or shine. Putting up signs in the neighborhood is always a good step but you can also advertise for free on Craigslist. There are lot of people who start their weekends by reviewing which estate sales are happening within driving range.

Have Cash

Your estate sale is going to be a cash business. You should start the day with change for hundred-dollar bill because you can bet the first person who shows up will have that! You should keep your money in the cash box that is easy to carry because you should never let it out of your sight.

Mark Prices

The night before the sale you should go through all the items that are being offered and attach a sticker with the sale price. This might not be your final price because everyone will haggle for something better. But it will be a good starting point. It also will help  you from getting “stuck” with one customer. If everyone is asking what’s this cost, then you can quickly become over well. They will see the stickers and either offer you what you’re asking or make a counter offer. You can take it and then the item is gone. Everybody wins!
