David Hitt and Ronald Shore's neighborhood multi-yard sale in the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles was a big success!
On Sunday, April 12th, we hosted a multi-family yard sale in the neighborhoods of Magnolia Woods and Sherman Oaks Quad. Over 25 families participated in the event.
In the weeks leading up to the sale, residents who wanted to participate signed up with us so their addresses could be included in a map of all participating homes. One home, across from Kester Elementary School was chosen as the focal-point, which was advertised in various print and on-line media. A document box was set out in front of that home with maps, so shoppers could move about the neighborhood from one home to another and not miss out on any good finds. On the morning of the event we drove the neighborhood putting up signs directing traffic to each of the homes.
We then spent the rest of the morning visiting each of the participants of the sale and making sure they all had copies of the sale map to hand out to interested shoppers. Of course, the fun part for us was seeing all the great merchandise that the residents had brought out, and enjoying a bit of conversation with each of the neighbors.
Several of the neighbors said that they felt organizing the sale in this way was a great way for them re-home their unused belongings and guarantee a great amount of traffic for their sales. We are always glad to organize events like this. It is just a small example of the service that we as Realtors can provide. As an 18 year resident of Magnolia Woods, David already knows so many of the neighbors that organizing such an event comes naturally.
It is estimated that there are on average 165,000 yard sales held each week in our country, and 690,000 people who buy an item at a yard sale every week. The top 3 least-loved yard sale items are: Stuffed Animals, Televisions, and Magazines. The top 3 best-loved yard sale items are: Tools, Collectibles, and Sports Equipment. *
We will be planning another yard sale event in Sherman Oaks in the Fall of this year, so please be on the lookout for more information from us.
