How To Start Flipping Furniture on Craigslist and Facebook For Free

How to start flipping furniture on craigslist is an idea that anyone can use to make money selling old and used unwanted furniture.

I’m sure most of the readers here have sold a piece of furniture online at one time or another, but I’m talking about refurbishing items and reselling them for a profit. If you like to stay busy, then you can easily do this on the side of your normal 9-5 job if you want.

Craigslist is simply one way to sell your refurbished items; there are other sites out there as well that allow people to buy and sell used furniture. 

This is how you start by finding items that others want to buy. For example, I currently have an old beat-up sofa that I need gone (it stays in my garage). It was once beautiful looking when it was brand new; unfortunately, it has gotten beat up over the years.

I plan to refurbish it to make it new again and resell it for a profit. I’m sure there are many others out there who would buy this sofa that looks brand new for more than what I paid for its purchase price. My initial cost was $15.00 at a garage sale.

Craigslist is not my only source of finding items to refurbish and sell. I pick up items from yard sales, thrift stores, people who are cleaning out their house or apartment for moving, etc. Craigslist is just the easiest way to quickly list the item for sale online.

Once you have your item to sell; 

Your next step is to take photos of the item and post it on Craigslist. You can write a description (including all its benefits and features). Watch the video to know more. 

Once you have found the buyer (Craigslist has a built-in email system); you can meet them at a local Starbucks or other public place to make the transaction.

That’s pretty much it. You can do this on the side of your normal job or full-time if you want to stay busy.

Furniture flips are a great way to make extra money for those who like working hard and making some extra cash along the way.
