(MoneyHippo.com) – Gary Vaynerchuk (Gary Vee) is a successful entrepreneur with many businesses to his name, but perhaps he’s most famous for his ability to flip garage sale finds. In fact, he created a video series detailing his methods of scouring weekend sales at people’s homes, buying the most popular items, and selling them on eBay for a profit. Here are three types of items to look for that resell for the most money.
- Vintage games: The classics like Monopoly or Life are typically good finds. Before buying, ensure the game has all the pieces and is in good condition. If it’s unopened — even better. When deciding how much to spend purchasing the item, search on eBay to see how much people are willing to pay. That way, you can ensure you don’t shell out too much for it.
- Nostalgic toys: Action figures, Matchbox cars, and Barbies can be a collector’s dream. Do your homework before heading out. What’s popular on the market at the moment? Is there a popular reboot of a classic cartoon reenergizing a new generation of fans? Start there.
- Reading material: Books, comic books, and manga can bring a pretty penny on resale. Typically, these items sell for cheap at garage sales. Look for classics, popular titles, and vintage comics for the best profit. Again, check the item’s popularity before purchasing.
When yard sale shopping, Vee says you don’t have to be first to get the best deals. Sometimes, hitting a place as they’re packing in for the day can net you a great buy. Good luck!
