Be sure to have plenty of change and small bills with you. Some sellers may not always be able to make change for large bills, and having exact cash in hand can help cement your low offer for items.

A simple negotiating technique is to make a reasonable offer, not more than 40% lower than the seller’s asking price, and expect the seller to negotiate up from there. You will typical negotiation this way will net you 20% – 30% off the seller’s original asking price.

Pay attention to any damage or flaws in items you are interested in buying at yard sales. This is a great way to ask for an additional discount.

Get more Cash for Cleaning out your Closet

Cleaning out or refreshing what’s hanging in your closet? A few ways to get more cash for the clothes you decide to sell will depend on the where & how you are going to sell them.

If you are going to have a Consignment shop sell your clothing items for you, make sure you negotiate the Seller’s Fees. Most stores will lower the fee if you take the time to ask up front!

If you want to get the most for your clothes at a Yard Sale, keep them displayed neatly (hung up on racks, or carefully folded), and have a reasonable asking price that is higher than you want – smart yard sale shoppers will want to negotiate the price down, and you will still get the price (or close to it) that you wanted in the first place.

If you are going to sell your clothes on eBay, make sure you have short, accurate descriptions and a good photo of each piece. If you have a Firm price in mind – list it as a Buy It Now. If you have a sought after, popular name-brand item, list as an Auction for the lowest ‘starting’ price you are comfortable with, and let the eBay shoppers bid each other for it.
