A yard sale offers a valuable opportunity to get rid of items before you sell your house. As such, it is important to promote your yard sale effectively; otherwise, you may miss out on a chance to declutter and earn extra cash at the same time.

Ultimately, there are many quick, easy ways to stir up interest in your yard sale, such as:

1. Post flyers in your city or town

Old-fashioned flyers can help you promote your yard sale to large groups of people in your city or town. That way, you can create a buzz around your event and increase the likelihood of selling your stuff.

If you use flyers to promote your yard sale, be sure to include essential information like the location, date and time of your event. Also, using bright, vibrant paper and colorful markers may help your flyers stand out.

Ensure that all of your yard sale flyers are legible, accurate and easy to understand. This will help minimize the risk of miscommunication with potential event attendees.

Of course, it never hurts to ask business owners for permission to post flyers at local companies, either. The more flyers that you post, the more likely it becomes that your yard sale will be a resounding success.

2. Create an online posting

An online posting makes it simple for you to provide details about your yard sale to large groups of people.

Putting an online posting on Craigslist or local community websites may prove to be worthwhile. And in some instances, you may even be able to include photos of items that you plan to sell at your yard sale.

In addition, invite friends on Facebook and other social networks to attend your upcoming yard sale. By doing so, you can boost your chances of stirring up substantial interest in the days leading up to your event.

3. Select the right date and time

Oftentimes, Saturdays and Sundays are the best days to host a yard sale, and for good reason. Many people don't have to work on weekends, and as a result, may have free time to attend your yard sale.

After you know which day of the week that you want to host your yard sale, consider the date and time of your event closely.

Take a look at the holiday calendar, and you should have no trouble selecting a yard sale date that works well for most people in your area.

Think about the time of your yard sale too. And remember, if you host a yard sale that coincides with local community events, it may be difficult for some people to attend.

Lastly, if you need extra help stirring up interest in your yard sale, don't hesitate to reach out to your real estate agent. This housing market professional may be able to share details about your upcoming yard sale with clients and colleagues.

Generating buzz in a yard sale can be easy, and with the aforementioned tips, you can stir up plenty of interest in your event.

Just because many Americans live in their house less than six years, doesn't mean that you can't come to love a house until it hurts emotionally to even think about moving. In fact, you'd be among more than about a third of America's homeowners if you stayed in your house for 10 or more years.

Houses are a lot more than brick and mortar

During those 10 or more years, you'd build memories. You're sure to do this even if you don't have children. There's the decorating, general maintenance and landscaping. There's also holiday gatherings, fine dining and hours resting on the sofa or in bed at night.

These are just a few of the experiences that turn a house into a vital part of your personal history. Live in a house long enough, raising children and caring for grandchildren when they visit on weekends, holidays and during summer, and you might not recall some of the warmest experiences in your life without seeing yourself in your house.

Yet, warm memories are not going to stop your house from aging. Warm memories won't stop your house's pipes from turning fragile, the roof from leaking or the floor from curling or sagging. If you're up in your years, your adult children or friends could stop by and help with repairs.

Take the sting out of leaving an old house

After awhile, even this may not suffice. You may have to face the fact that it's time to move. Give yourself time to adjust to looking for another house, perhaps a smaller, more modern home. Or perhaps you've decided to move into an apartment,the type of place you won't have to repair and maintain.

To adjust to moving out of a house with history, be sure to pack your pictures. Bring them with you to your new home. Discuss the idea of moving with family and friends. Don't bury your decision to move.

It also helps to write how you feel about moving out of your old house in a journal. Just getting the words on paper can make you feel better, can help you to feel empowered enough to take your memories with you to a new place.

After you decide on a house or apartment to move into, solicit the support of family and friends. Turn the move into a supportive event. Pull out your iPod and play your favorite songs. Let yourself laugh and recall fun times that you experienced in the house.

You could even take pictures of the move. Do the same when you arrive at your new home. After all, you're going to create warm memories at your new home too, the very memories that may one day be among your dearest.

Even with these steps, it may take months to adjust emotionally and psychologically to living in a new home. Be patient with yourself, the same as you would be with a good friend.
