Yard sales are always an efficient way to sell many items in a short period of time. Although they can be somewhat labor intensive, the payoff can often be worth it. In the Yakima area, both Craig’s list and the Yakima Herald Republic Newspaper will advertise your yard sale. There is a fee for the classified ad in the newspaper.
Online apps are becoming more and more prevalent in assisting us with buying and selling used items. Craig’s List has been one online venue that has been extremely useful in the past. It requires you to sign up and use an email address to connect with potential buyers. More recently, apps such as OfferUp and LetGo have been rivaling Craig’s list due to their ease of use and ability to connect with potential buyers directly through the app.
If you are on Facebook, you can use their marketplace platform to post pictures and buy used items from others in your area. It is relatively simple and your item can be posted quite quickly.
