Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR HOME -

GUMTREE & OLX Th­ese are the go-to sites for re­sellers through­out South Africa. With mil­lions of peo­ple scour­ing the sites each week, you can find a buyer for pretty much any­thing if you price it right. Sim­ply up­load a pic­ture and fill in a de­scrip­tion and price. Re­mem­ber to read the safety info on the site, so you don’t fall for scams. Visit www. gumtree.co.za and www.olx.co.za. If you think your item might at­tract in­ter­na­tional in­ter­est, con­sider load­ing it on www.ebay.com. MOV­ING ON Whether you’re mov­ing house or get­ting rid of clut­ter, Mov­ing On is a fun and has­sle-free way to sell all your goods at once. How does it work? Mov­ing On staffers will take pho­tos of the items you want to sell and will rec­om­mend prices. Mov­ing On agents then host the sale at your house on a Satur­day or Sun­day. Buy­ers get a pre­view of what you’re sell­ing by view­ing pho­tos be­fore­hand on the Mov­ing On web­site ( www.movin­gon.co.za). FACE­BOOK MAR­KET­PLACE This Face­book des­ti­na­tion makes it easy to post items for sale to all lo­cal Face­book users, and al­lows you to check the pro­files of in­ter­ested buy­ers, co­or­di­nate through Mes­sen­ger and re­port sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity. Also join lo­cal com­mu­nity bric-a-brac fo­rums where you can sell items to peo­ple in your area. Al­ways list a price – priced items sell faster than those with­out prices. Visit www.face­book. com/mar­ket­place. IN­STA­GRAM If you’re plan­ning on sell­ing a large num­ber of items, you can do it via In­sta­gram too. Set up a busi­ness ac­count that is ded­i­cated to all the goods you want to sell. Tag the price and de­scrip­tion and you’re good to go. Link it to your per­sonal ac­count in your bio to make it eas­ier for your fol­low­ers to find it. Visit www.in­sta­gram.com.
