Buy and sell locally with this alternative that’s better than Craigslist

As you tidy up around the house, I’m sure you’ll find a few things that you no longer need. It can be so hard to part with the past, but getting money for these old yet quality items can soften the blow. Here’s one of the easiest ways I’ve found to get cash for your old furniture, tech gear and clothes.Letgo, a website and app, makes it really easy to buy things from people nearby and sell the things you don’t want. Getting started is very quick if you use your Facebook or Google account to sign up. Accounts make it so that you can post items to sell or contact people you’d like to buy from.There are several ways to shop. You can browse through categories like “Fashion and Accessories,” “Baby and Child” or “Cars and Motors.” You can also search by city and state. It’s similar to Craigslist but with a modern, fresh layout. Plus, who wants to deal with all those Craiglist scams?If you want to post an item to sell then you need to download their free app. Use your phone’s camera to snap up to five pictures of the product, write a small description and you’re done. Buyers will see a map of your approximate area and they can contact you for sales without actually emailing or texting since it’s through the app.Click the blue button below to browse the Letgo site for deals. If you’re more interested in selling your things, then click here to learn about the Letgo app for Apple and Android.
