Getting rid of out unwanted items and possessions is not only a good idea before you move, but will also reduce clutter, making your house more presentable and appealing to potential buyers. One great way to clear out your old stuff is to hold a garage sale.Here’s what you’ll need to make sure your garage sale is successful:
- Get organised early. Prepare and hold your garage sale as far in advance of putting your home on the market as possible.
- Check with your neighbours if they want to join in.
- Set a date and time – a Saturday morning starting at 8am or 9am is best.
- Sort through everything you want to get rid of and separate out items that people won’t realistically want to buy. Recycle or dispose of these straight away – don’t bring down the tone of your garage sale with actual junk!
