Hosting a Garage Sale - Sellers - Haring Realty

Moving presents the perfect opportunity to get rid of unwanted or less-used items. And while you could easily donate, trash, or recycle those items, hosting a garage sale is an excellent way to pare down your possessions and earn some extra cash at the same time. Plus, you'll spend a lot less time packing and save money by not having to pay for transporting things that are going to add clutter to your new life. Now you just need to figure out how to make a profitable and hassle-free garage sale. Our REALTORS® are here to help you with the following tips.

  • Decide What to Sell
    Your first task when planning a pre-move garage sale is to sort and organize your unused items. Go through all the items in your closets, cabinets, attic, garage, basement, shed, and other dark corners. Assess their financial, practical, and sentimental value and set aside for sale things that are in good conditions but don't serve a purpose in your life. If an item is broken, dirty, or not in working order, then toss it.

Moving from an apartment into your first home is exciting. But, it's also a bit nerve-wracking as you ponder plans for all the additional space you now have at your disposal. Our REALTORS® understand how you feel, and there are plenty of things you can do to keep your mind focused on the tasks ahead. The following tips will help you tie a bow on all the details so that you can enjoy settling into your new home.

  • Take care of the apartment first. Make sure to reread your lease and notify your landlord of your intention to move within the specified timeframe. You will want to confirm your responsibilities, when you'll get your deposit back, etc. You should also take care of any final rent payments, utility bills, and don't forget to file a change-of-address form with the post office.
