Let’s start with a story…
“Once upon a time, there was a nice couple that owned a nice home in a nice neighborhood.
Every day, they would wake up, exercise and walk their dog.
Until one day, a new home they were looking to buy accepted their offer and they had to move.
Because of this, the nice couple needed to quickly sell the things that they didn’t need any more so that their move would go smoothly.
Because of that, the nice couple needed a way to list what was for sale, accept credit cards and notify everyone within 50 miles about the items they were selling.
In the end, they used Yardaroo to sell their belongings, kept 100% of the money and spent their profits on a new boat.”
Millions of homeowners across the country downsize and move every year. Hauling everything you own might not be an option. Your best bet is to sell items that you don’t need for a profit.
