Planning for a Garage Sale

by Valerie Pineo 07/28/2019

A successful garage sale is not as straightforward and simple as it seems and requires adequate planning. If you are planning on selling your garage, go through the following tips carefully: 

Plan your garage sales at the right time 

Knowing the right day and time is the first step towards a profitable garage sale.  However, you must be aware of the fact that the right time for your garage sales hinges on your location. 

In some areas, the right time for sales is Friday night and Saturday morning while the best time to sell in other regions is Wednesday. Watch for signs in your neighborhood to know the right time to sell your garage.  Another way to understand the perfect time is by checking the local newspaper for garage sales listings. 

Consider a neighborhood sale  

Posting a neighborhood sale tends to attract a large number of people. If you are planning a neighborhood sale, consider the seller's list.  This list will be available at the entrance of your neighborhood. This list contains the address of all participating household and the items they have for sale.

Organize your garage sale 

An excellent way to make your garage attractive to prospective buyers is by getting it organized. No one will be willing to buy a property that is in disarray. Therefore, have all tables and items spread out to make them look more appealing to intending buyers. 

Make your Items look attractive on display 

Make sure the items you put on display are clean. When dust covers your pictures or the plates on display have food on them, prospective buyers will not be willing to buy such items. It is crucial that you spend some time cleaning and washing all your goods before displaying them.

Wash and hang your clothes 

If you intend to sell your clothing, take time to wash them and get them ironed if possible. Buyers will be interested in purchasing clean and well-packed clothes. Apart from attracting quality buyers, it will boost the value of clothes, enabling you to make more money.

It is advisable to hang your clothes once you have them washed and ironed. Hanging them will help you in the following ways

- It gives the customer a better view of your clothes on display. 

- Hanging your clothes can increase their value 

- It makes people feel that they are shopping in a store instead of a garage sale.

Do you have some items you sell out quickly at a reasonable price? A garage sale will help you get some value for your unused items.
