We all want to get our money’s worth when we decide to sell some of our belongings. How much you get, however, its determinant on the timing. Here are some key indicators of some of the best times to sell:
When it comes to selling or trading in your vehicle, there are several aspects that may affect how much you are able to sell it for. Around tax season is usually a good time to sell because people are receiving their refunds and are more likely to make a bigger purchase. The seasons may also impact whether or not it’s a good time to sell. For example, in the winter, it may a little easier to sell a vehicle with four wheel drive than it is to sell a convertible. Take all factors into consideration before selling.
Most real estate experts will tell you the best time to sell your home is in the summer. While this is the most popular time for many to buy, it’s also the time with the most competition. The more saturated the market is, the less likely your home is to be noticed. What can you do to help, however, is make sure that your home has curb appeal, you’ve made small fixes, and your open house is successful.
For used clothing, you’ll want time to time selling around the seasons. Just like a car, you aren’t likely to get much interest in your winter parka in the middle of summer. However, you also don’t want to wait until it’s too late in the season and people already have what they need. A good time frame to follow is about 6 to 8 weeks before that item is wearable. When listing online, make sure you use high quality so potential buyers know what they’re getting. Before taking photographs, wash your clothing, iron anything that’s wrinkled, and use good, natural lighting. The better your items are presented, the more likely they are to sell.
