We all have things at home we’d be willing to sell for the right price or to the right buyer. You may think you haven't got that many things that you must sell. How about the things you don't necessarily need to get rid of today but that you'd be willing to sell for the right price or to the right buyer?
Things we would be willing to sell
If you're anything like me, you store things that you think might come in handy someday or that you simply find it hard to let go of, such as workout equipment, art, dishware, gadgets, musical instruments, collector's items, and children's toys and clothing. These things remain in storage, cluttering your attic or spare room. This does no one any good and makes no one happy. If the right buyer were to come along or if someone were to offer you the right price, you'd be willing to sell these items, but otherwise they will remain in your possession.
Avoid selling under time pressure
At some point, you will have to get rid of your excess stuff, for example, when you are about to move to a new house or you need to clear the spare room for visitors. At this point, you may need to sell your items in a hurry, which makes it less likely that you'll get a price you're content with, if you're able to sell them at all. You may end up taking those things to the dump, which doesn't benefit you or anyone else.
If you set up a jumblet today, you can make people aware of all the things you have that you’d be willing to sell, far in advance of when you're under time pressure to sell them. You'll be able to sell them in a far more relaxed way, on your own terms. You'll have enough time to wait for the right price or the right buyer.
What is the right price?
The right price is simply what you would need to receive in order to feel happy about the sale. If you're selling under time pressure, you may be forced to accept an amount lower than the price that would make you feel that you'd been properly compensated for your initial investment and for taking such good care of the item that it's suitable for resale.
Who is the right buyer?
For some reason, you may prefer to sell to a certain person and want to favor that person. You may be willing to offer them first dibs or a lower price than others, simply because you're already acquainted with them in some way or because they live nearby. It may be that you prefer to sell the item to someone you already know because it feels good to help people around you.
