Host a Garage Sale - Sellers - Tarvin Realtors

If you've been in your home for a long time, chances are you have a garage or attic full of boxes you have stored for future needs. But, after not opening them for five years, they suddenly seem more of a burden than a treasure. If the time has come to add your house to the list of Ridgewood homes for sale, it's also time to shed that burden. One of the best ways to do that is to host a garage sale. Our agents have some suggestions to help maximize your profits while minimizing the hassle.

  • Investigate regulations and restrictions
    The first question to ask is whether your HOA has any special rules regarding garage sales. If you aren't allowed to conduct a sale on your own property, is there a clubhouse or other option that you can use as an alternative? Check for any restrictions on signs, whether by the HOA or the city. Does your community require that you purchase a permit? Take the time to make a few phone calls to make sure you are within compliance.
