FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE or nextdoor –
If you have time for this option, selling things via social media can be a great way to make some extra money and find a new home for your belongings. Since many folks already have these apps on their phone, you get access to the geographical users in your area who are using the platform. And what’s even better, this service is free with your free user profile account.
Start by doing some research on the price of similar items to determine how you want to price it. Then, to avoid a ton of back and forth messaging:
1. Take clear photos. Close ups with different angles with good lighting, maybe 5-10 photos, and upload them to the item listing.
2. Write a detailed description. Include things like dimensions, color description, and accurate details of flaws or damage. Many people are willing to still purchase your less than perfect items if they know ahead of time.
3. Choose local pick-up only. Be specific in the description if someone needs a pickup truck or any other requirements for once it’s purchased.
4. Post and share. Facebook will allow you to share with your friends, groups, and public feeds. This will help spread the word as much as possible to get your item sold in hopefully a timely manner.
5. Be smart. If possible, move the item outside and arrange for payment ahead of time. Cash is always king, but it’s popular for people to use Venmo or Zelle. Don’t accept a large payment electronically if you haven’t verified who you have been speaking with. Always have someone with you when you sell the item if it’s a face to face meeting. Don’t post your address in the pickup or public description unless you are having a public sale like a garage sale or on-going viewings.
