Real estate professionals will always tell you about location, location, location. A good location will help your garage sale but the most important key factor is:
Advertising, Advertising, Advertising!
The newspaper ads in the garage sale section of the classifieds will help but often people reading the paper do not live in your immediate area, unless you have very rare or otherwise popular items, the newspaper alone will not get you the amount of customers you want.
HERE'S THE SECRET
Signs! Let me explain why and how to use them to be the most effective form of advertising for your garage sale. Most of your customers will not be the “professional garage sellers" who search the classifieds, wake up before the rooster crows, and try to find the $1,000,000 stamp or piece of art from your junk drawer. Most of the folks who are going to hand you cash; $5 here, $25 there, etc. . . are the people that happen to be driving around the area this coming beautiful Saturday morning.
Post flyers with your address and some of the highlighted items for sale in your neighborhood, local grocery stores, gas stations, drug stores, etc. . . 1-2 days before the sale.
Create a large yard sign “Garage Sale" to be placed in your front yard so that it can be seen easily by traffic going both ways. Multi-colored flags are a great attention getter and adds an element of excitement to the event.
Find and place signs at all major intersections outside of your neighborhood. They are only going to be up for 1 day.
Step 4 – Very Important!
Find and place signs at all entrances to your neighborhood pointing to your garage sale.
Place a garage sale sign with an arrow at each turn from the entrance to your neighborhood pointing to your garage sale.
Prepare to collect the Cash!
The steps above ensures that everyone driving around that day will see that you are having a BIG garage sale and will easily be able to navigate to it. Once they are at your sale there are other secretes to having them impulsively buy and give you more money!
