Winter Is a Great Time to Have an Estate Sale
For most people, spring and summer are the times of year most closely associated with yard sales and garage sales. This is due to the warmer weather and because those are the times of the year people are most likely to perform a little spring cleaning of their attics, basements, and garages.
The weather tends to be more pleasant and stable, and that means people are more likely to be outdoors on a weekend, enjoying the sunny weather and maybe snapping up a few bargains in the process. That's great for buyers, but for sellers, the spring and summer can be pretty competitive when it comes to getting the most for your stuff.
Hosting a sale during the winter months when competition is less is a great way to get the most interest, the most buyers, and the most cash for unwanted items.
During winter months when there is less competition, buyers have fewer places to look for great deals. As a result, hosting a sale in those winter months means more people will attend your sale and items sell faster with less bargaining. Plus, during the winter, kids are in school, so you are likely to have more interest if your sale includes a weekday like Thursday or Friday in addition to weekends.
Because they are less common, winter sales have a psychological advantage over the more commonplace sales of spring and summer. Winter sales are a rarity and that means buyer enthusiasm and interest are at an all-time peak making sales more fun and exciting. After all, who does not like a little bargain-shopping to break up the gray days and monotony of winter?
But what about the weather? Certainly, outdoor venues benefit from the warmer weather of spring and summer, but with an estate sale, you do not have to worry about cold, damp weather turning buyers away from your sale. Instead, your buyers can shop indoors in comfort without worrying about the weather.
