Garage sales are a great way to declutter your home and make a little extra pocket cash at the same time. But a poorly planned sale often yields little in return. And if you’re in Sacramento, an unplanned garage sale can even result in a fine!
Here at Sac’s Garage Door Repair, we’ve put together 5 tips that’ll help you have a winning garage sale.
5 Tips for Having the Best Garage Sale Ever
1) Plan It Out
Plan out what date you want to hold the sale. Saturday mornings work well because many people don’t have to work at that time.
It’s always a good idea to let people in your area know that you’re having a sale. Try placing ads in garage sale websites and local newspapers. You can also set up signs in your neighborhood, just check local laws to make sure this is legal in your area.
3) Create an Inventory
Write down a list of everything your selling along with the price. This will help you keep track of your belongings and prevent thievery.
4) Keep It Presentable
Make sure the area you’re having the sale at is clean. If it’s the front of your home, finish all your yard work a day before the event. When setting up tables, keep everything lined up and organized. A nice and neat sale will encourage more potential buyers to take a look at what you’re selling.
5) Comply with Local Laws
If you’re in Rocklin, Folsom, or any other Sacramento county, be sure to check out city laws. There are restrictions on what you can sell and how often you can hold sales.
And last but not least, have a safe, fun, and profitable garage sale!
