Real Estate Secrets to a Successful Garage Sale

Are you needing to get rid of some things as you prepare to Sell your Salt Lake City Home? or maybe you just want to de clutter your home for summer? Whichever the case may be we have some Secrets to share with you in regard to having a Successful Garage Sale.



1. Invite neighbors and friends to sell items at your sale. The more items you have the more traffic you'll draw.

2. Advertise. Post signs around the neighborhood and on community bulletin boards. Use big bold text and obey local laws regarding signage.

3. Get change. Keep a roll of quarters, a stack of 25 $1 bills, a few $5 bills and a couple of $10s on hand.

4. Prepare your staging area. People will be more inclined to stop if the sale is in your yard or driveway, inviting and easy to browse. You can lure customers by placing highly desirable items near the road.

5. Set your policies before the sale. Determine how low prices can go on each item. Decide whether you will sell to early birds - those super shoppers who show up the day before or a few hours before the sale starts.

6. Do a walk -though. Are items clearly marked? Are your clothes on the ground in boxes? or are they place neatly on a table or a rack? Would you pay $10 for that porcelain cat? Is there enough space for parking to avoid inconveniencing neighbors? Tip: Make sure that family heirloom or child's cherished toy isn't out for sale.

7. Show items to their advantage. For example, display books on a bookcase. Hang clothing on a rack. Clean items that have been stored before putting them out for sale.
