For weeks you’ve been tracking this special unit, loaded with goodies. It’s been a hard battle, you fought valiantly in the bid war, and have come out on top! You are now the proud owner of this unit.
You may be wondering, what now? You just won a unit loaded with furniture, knick knacks, and all kinds of other items. Luckily for you – there are more avenues now for reselling than there has ever been before.
In the age of technology, you aren’t limited to selling locally. While you still have the option to resell your finds in local thrift stores and pawn shops, the internet has opened the door to a whole new world of buying and selling.
Here are a few places to consider when re-selling your newly acquired goods:
- This is arguably the fastest growing marketplace. Who doesn’t have a Facebook, right?!
- No fee or commission for sold items with Facebook
- To boost your reach, you can post in local groups and local garage sale pages
- Letgo is all about the visuals, so be sure to capture the best photos of your storage auction finds
- You simply take photos with your smartphone and upload it directly on the app
- They offer a paid feature to reach more potential buyers
- What’s interesting about OfferUp is the buyers ability to offer a counter price – hence the name, “OfferUp.”
- OfferUp, however, does come with other fees, despite being free to use, such as shipping and handling fees
- You can set the price for your options along with the times you’re able to meet with potential buyers
- Trove also allows buyers to search by both city and zip code, making it more likely you’ll be in their area
- Probably the first place that comes to mind when you think of selling anything online
- You can sell your item at a set rate or list as an auction
- eBay does have a seller’s fee to consider
