Make More Money at Garage Sales by Not Pricing Items

Garage sales are a great way to pare down your excess stuff and make some
quick cash in the process. However, you can make more money with a few
little tricks. For example, consider not pricing your items to get more
cash for them.
Lynda Hammond of GarageSaleGal tells the Today.com:

A lot of times you will get more money if you don’t price stuff.
Maybe you have an old chef’s cookie jar you’ve always hated and would
take a buck for it. But, maybe the buyer has been looking for that and
would name a higher price.

This tip surprised me. I’d assume that people would be less willing to buy an item if it didn’t have a price tag. But Hammond makes a good point, and for bigger ticket items, this might give the buyer a chance to throw out the first number. Also, I’ve never been great at garage sales.
