Do You Have The Right Place for Garage Sale

Another question to ask yourself is, ďDo I have a good location for a sale?Ē Ideal locations are in centrally located neighborhoods in town. Shoppers should be able to find your place on a city map.

In a rush to make money quick, don't forget to check for special ordinances governing garage

Even if you have the biggest garage or driveway in town, your location may not be ideal if the neighbors complain. You may want to check with the next-door neighbors to make sure they wonít object. At the least, a garage sale causes parking problems and noise, but many times neighbors wonít mind and may even come over to see whatís for sale


Make Money with The Right Stuff

Time the Sale

Timing is everything. When you hold your sale can be just as important as where. Again, look at the forecast, although itís not always 100% accurate, it can still give you a general idea of when the weather will co-operate. The best time to have a sale is spring through fall.
