A yard sale can be a great way to de-clutter your home and make some quick cash, but it's also a lot of hard work. That's why it's good to have a few sales tricks to help you rake in the money. Here are a few to get you started.
When it comes to arranging your display, put the strongest merchandise in the most visible spots and group all your other items together by category. Having a tight setup can help you hook more potential customers, as some people won't even bother to stop the car if they perceive your stuff as piles of junk.
The next thing to do is price things by group whenever possible. Not only is it easier for buyers, it'll help you get rid of smaller items that wouldn't normally sell as easily.
Once you've decided on your prices, make sure to mark all your prices clearly. This might seem like common sense, but you'd be surprised at how quickly customers can get put-off by having to ask for a price on every single item. Display your prices prominently.
If you are clueless about getting started, contact a friend or a relative who can help you out. Apart from the added man power, your friend or relative can also invite some people they know to check out the items in your yard sale.
