The life of a human being can be broken down into vivid memories stored in his brain. The time he spends in this world binds him with family, relatives, and friends; thus creating memories for his whole life. Besides connecting with living beings, a human also creates bonds with his house, his porch, his garden and sometimes with the used furniture sitting at his home. So, it is always quite hard when you have to part ways with your beloved furniture with which you have created so many memories.
There are many reasons which may press you into selling your furniture. You may be renovating your place, shifting homes or adding new furniture to your room. Whatever the reason may be, it is always nice to receive a decent sum of money as a parting memory with your furniture.
Never Sell in Haste
Unless you are suddenly intimated that you have to move to a different location, you should not sell your used furniture in haste. Every piece of furniture has a buyer ready to welcome it with open arm into his/her home. All you need to do is to be patient and wait for the right buyer. Remember: The value of your furniture is different for different individuals.
Plan your Selling
The most important thing you need to know about your used furniture is its value. Depending on the condition of your furniture, material, and its overall look, its value can vary. Go online and look at comparable furniture and see the price they are sold at. Figure out a value for your furniture by comparing it with similar furniture available on the website. Once you have a tentative price in your mind, plan the way you will sell it. You can use online portals or organize a garage sale. You can even call up your friends and relatives to come up to your place and see if they fancy any of your goods.
Selling Product Online
There are many websites online which can help you in selling your used furniture at a decent price. You can go to sites like Craiglist or eBay to create an online listing for your product. It is quite easy to create an advertisement for your furniture on these web portals. You need to create an online account, snap a few photos of your furniture from different angles, and write a description of your product. In three easy steps, your product will be viewable to the prospective buyers. You can even use social networking sites for selling your product.
Selling Product at a Garage Sale
In case you have a lot of items for sale and you need to sell them quickly, you can set up a garage sale. If you don’t mind the hassle of dealing with too many people, it is definitely a good option. People who do not like to bargain should fix the price of every item and put up banners that say “No Bargaining” at the entrance. There will be times when most of the items are sold and you will be left with a few. In this case, you can reduce the price at the end and let them go for cheap.
Clean it Up
No one likes a dirty Sofa, even if it is available at a fraction of the original price. Remove all stains, polish up the edges, and if your furniture is slightly faded, you can even consider painting it for making it look presentable. You can also carry out minor repairs if your product is a precious antique piece. Mild repairing can greatly increase the selling price of your furniture.
