Quick CASH! :)

Want to know how to make some quick cash?  One word...


It's simple, convenient, and if you price your stuff's quick!

Point in case, last night I listed these two items:

$40 for the mini-fridge (retails for $75 new)

$150 for the swing set (retails for $560 new)

Both of these items were given to me and I got great use out of them.

By the time morning rolled around, we had about 10 interested buyers for the swing set and a hand full of people interested in the fridge.  WHAT?!!!!  Heck yeah!

It always makes you question whether or not you should have asked more money, however I have learned to remind myself of the following:

1. Choose a price that you are willing to live with.  Ask that price.  Don't regret it later.
2. You want to sell it quickly!  If you are willing to sit on it for a while, go ahead and ask more.  
3. Good deals are a blessing to other people! (I always feel so blessed when I find a good deal.  It's kind of like the "pay it forward" concept. :)
4. You'll usually get more selling it on CL than if you split the profit with a consigner.

So go ahead and try it!  It can't hurt.  All you have to do is:

-take a picture of the item (Trust picture = WAY less likely to sell)
-post it ("sell it" in the description)  I often will include a link to the original item so that buyers can read the reviews and see the original description
-be honest about the condition (you don't want someone to get to your house and end up not buying it)
-know ahead of time what your bottom dollar is
-be willing to meet someone for pick up (if you don't feel comfortable with a stranger coming to your house)
-make sure they pay in CASH!!!
-I also include Caleb's cell phone number in the add and let people know they can call or text for more info.  This has helped things sell very quickly!

There ya go!  Happy selling!  Share your CL stories with me.  I'm posting a couple more things on there tonight.  Hopefully I'll have the same success that I've had in the past.  I've always sold my stuff in less than 48 hours.  That, my friends, makes me happy! :)
