OBTAIN LISTINGS BY VISITING GARAGE SALES

GARAGE SALE CREATES A LEAD

GARAGE SALES PHOENIX, ARIZONA

It is that time of year again. I am starting to see garage sale signs all over the Phoenix area. How many people love garage sales? Personally, my wife and I have a garage sale one time per year in order to remove junk from our house. Plus, it shows our kids not to be pack rats. Furthermore, it is a great way to make a few hundred bucks in a few hours depending on what one has for sale.

 

Our family has a garage once per year. It is amazing that you see the same people year after year. It is a great way to meet people in the community. I pass out my business cards. My next store neighbor is an expert at garage sales. He collects antiques so it is more of a hunt for him.

I just wanted to share my success story from last weekend. My family went for a hike. We made a stop at a garage sale near our house. We purchased a couple items. Then, I started talking with the owners. Yes, I got myself a buyer. They were having a garage sale to rent out the house. They are looking for another primary house. I gave her my card and asked her to listen to my weekly radio show. She was hooked. I love Garage Sales.

Will you be shopping at a garage sale this weekend?

NEVER PAY RETAIL?

Another great way is to sponser the Garage Sale.  Put up signs for them and deliver coffee and donuts in the morning.  They never forget it...

Hi Harry. That's a great idea.  I recently stopped by a garage sale and it has led me to one listing. ~ Lana
