Do you have a mountain of clutter you’d like to get through quickly? Or are you up for some much needed deep cleaning? It’s no wonder since most households are far more likely to keep buying stuff without getting rid of the old.
Luckily, now that you’ve decided to tackle the problem, you could even make a little bit of a profit. With the help of the magic of the Internet, all your unwanted items can turn into dollar signs- if you’re patient enough to do it properly!
Today we’ve prepared a list of 20 tips that will make selling all your clutter online easier, quicker, profitable, and most importantly, safe!
Try Facebook First
Facebook might not sound like the ideal place to sell your goods, but it’s slowly becoming a behemoth in the industry. Sure, you can still opt for Craigslist, but Facebook offers you the possibility of knowing a seller or buyer’s identity from the very start.
Check out the Marketplace feature, which connects sellers with local buyers. You can also find a more specific audience by joining yard sale groups, or groups of people interested in baby gear, furniture or other niche items.
Don’t Forget Ebay
While Facebook and Craigslist might be a good place to find local buyers for your unwanted goods, if you have any valuables, you should definitely post them on eBay.
Due to the website’s national audience, you’ll have a much higher chance of finding interested parties. Just take a look right now and you’ll find a ton of people selling designer clothes and collectibles. All you have to keep in mind are shipping and listing fees and you’re good to go.
But if eBay isn’t the place for you, look for websites that specialize in the items you’re trying to sell.
