I’m usually altering issues round in my house. I don’t prefer to hoard, so as a substitute of storing issues for “maybe I’ll use that again” (or perhaps I gained’t!), I simply promote it. Nothing higher than a very good clear out and some further money in my purse for the week.
My favorite place to promote is through our native Facebook pages. There are a few Buy, Swap, Sell Groups with a lot of members so it has a bustling and busy viewers.
Don’t promote every little thing without delay
If you might have a storage stuffed with junk, or a bursting linen cabinet, don’t overwhelm your self with attempting to record and promote every little thing all of sudden. Just a few issues at a time is healthier to deal with.
There are not any seasons
There is not any proper time to promote furniture or homewares. You simply want to begin. There is all the time somebody wanting round to buy a cut price.
Be lifelike. It will get my goat after I see individuals promoting outdated furniture approach over what it’s price. You can not (and I can’t stress this sufficient!) fear about what you paid for it initially. That’s gone, you’ve used it, and it’s over. For instance, you might have paid $800 for that eating desk, however now you can purchase a brand new one from Fantastic Furniture for $300, so you should be waaaayyyy underneath this to even be thought of! If you’re not getting likes, feedback or gives, then it should all the time be since you’re evaluating what you need for it with what you paid for it years in the past.
Turn the filters off
Don’t put filters or lighten/darker your images. Take images of the merchandise in pure gentle and depart them as is. Take a lot of images too. Different angles and measurements will present the customer you’re eager to do away with it. If the furniture has any little marks or scratches then be truthful and add these images to the itemizing. If it wants a brand new coat of paint, or a sand again then supply this info up within the itemizing.
Never promote grubby stuff
Don’t promote throw cushions, blankets, dusty furniture that’s soiled. Wash it, clear it, give it a bit of affection. After all, you’re asking for somebody to provide you cash for it so it’s greatest to current the merchandise in good religion.
Keep an eye fixed in your itemizing
Always watch the itemizing. Check for feedback and messages. Answer as quickly as you may since you may jag that sale faster. Get the customer to return and decide the merchandise up asap. I like that to occur inside 24 hours. I gained’t maintain issues for individuals. I prefer to make it fast and transfer on to promoting one thing else. 🙂
Be ready to take a lesser supply in the event you’re eager to do away with it. Better to have a couple of further $$ and the merchandise gone than caught with it. You’ll have extra time to maneuver on to the following merchandise to promote!
