You have an accepted offer on your home. Time to start packing and decide what keep, what to donate and what to sell. Some guidelines to follow when having a garage sale are:
1. Pick a date and advertise it in the local paper and online (http://yardsale.com/ is a great place post)
2. Price Everything! It may seem like a daunting task. Grouping your items into price points and color coding them with stickers will help you sort your items and reduce questions about pricing. Red is $1.00 Green is $2.00 Yellow $5.00 etc.
3. If you think something has significant value, have it appraised. A good local resource is http://www.ragoarts.com/contact
4. Schedule a pick up for unsold items. The Vets are prompt and take a wide variety of items including furniture: http://scheduleapickup.com/
Having a plan and sticking to it will allow this process to be seamless and stress free.
