Selling stuff online can be a great way to make some extra money. One of the most popular sites that is free to use is Craigslist. Before you use the site you should read our article on red flags of a scam on Craigslist.
You're going to get noticed, whether you're trying to sell top-of-the-line appliances you don't want anymore or old junk in your closet that someone else would love to own. More than 60 million people visit Craigslist every month, and they visit the site 50 billion times.
So, before you throw anything away, think about a more lucrative option: selling it. Are you ready to get that unsightly car out of your driveway? Are you sick of looking at that perfectly good TV in the garage that no one's watching?
Do yourself a favor and post them on Craigslist. Not only will you clear up space in your house, but you'll make some extra cash. If you're ready to get started, here are the top 10 things Craigslist shoppers buy.
1. Home Appliances
Home appliances can be super expensive to buy at a retail price. That's why they are such good items to sell on Craigslist. Typically, the most common home appliances such as refrigerators, washers and dryers, and dishwashers last a really long time. So, you might have extras sitting around your house.
Or, if you're in the process of upgrading, it would be wise to list them on Craigslist, instead of tossing them in the dump. Craigslist is the perfect place for someone to purchase a home appliance they can afford. Who knows? It could be your old one.
Note: If you have an appliance that no longer works, sell it anyway. List it at a low price and be honest about its condition. You'll be surprised how quickly someone takes it off your hands.
Similar to home appliances, electronics sell fast on Craigslist because everyone needs them. But they can be expensive.
If you have electronics like TVs, tablets and gaming devices that you want to get rid of, and you price them so they're affordable for a lot of people, they'll sell fast on Craigslist.
Note: If you're not sure what to charge for something, check sites like eBay to see how much other people are asking for it.
