Present an Array of Items

People tend to just keep driving when they only see a lot of the same few items. While clothes and shoes are a great start to a yard sale, the items that will really draw in customers are items such as small appliances, electronics (televisions, stereos, video games, etc.) and furniture.

Use Tables to Display More Expensive Items

Don’t place the expensive items on the ground. If your customers can clearly see everything displayed, it will be easier to sell. Properly displaying those items will also give them a greater perceived value, which means you can charge more for them.

Create Price Tags for Each Item

Avoid the annoying question of, “How much do you want for this?” by simply creating a price tag for every item. It may be a little tedious, but it will help to streamline the process once people start to show up.

Make Outstanding Signs

Not only should you have good signs that get people to drive by, but you should have good signs that say what products you have so you can get people to stop. Making signs is also the fun part because you can get your kids involved in this part of the process.

Have Plenty of Change

Take a trip to the bank the day before to make sure you have plenty of coins and small bills. This way you don’t miss out on a sale because you can’t break a 10 or 20-dollar bill.

A yard sale is a great way to make some extra cash and get rid of the items you no longer want. For more helpful homeowner tips and information on the master-planned community of Caliterra in Dripping Springs, TX, visit the Caliterra living website today.
