Location, location, location: If you don’t live on a well-traveled street, or live in a spot with no parking, maybe it’s time to make a deal with a friend or family member in a better spot. Location is the difference between a home run and a dud, when it comes to yard sale success, so do your best to aim for the best location possible. It’s worth it to check to see if you need a permit from your city for a yard sale, too. Nothing rains on a good sale like getting shut down. Bonus tip: if a friend/family member gives you the go ahead, make it a multi-family yard sale – people tend to go out of their way for two-in-one sales, estate sales, and moving sales.
