Moving Sales

I was chatting with a FSBO that I've been working with for some time now and she informed me that she had a "Moving Sale" over the weekend and had more interest in her home than she did in the items she was selling in her "Moving Sale". She was very excited that she had finally got some people to her house and had gotten some exposure. There are several ways to get exposure if you are considering selling your home, many of which are quite costly. This method, however, is quite inexpensive, and depending on the success of the sale itself, may actually make you some money.

So if you are trying to sell your home without the services of a Realtor®, then holding a "Moving Sale" might be a great way to get the word out that you are selling your home.

This consept may also apply to those individuals who have hired a Realtor® to help them sell their homes. We almost always advise our clients to de-clutter their homes at least a little bit when preparing their home for sale. Having a moving or garage sale while the house is on the market may generate some additional interest above and beyond what your Realtor® is generating on his/her end.
