An online garage sale ad should include the dates and times of the sale, the address and an overview of the items in the sale. Specific wording often attracts buyers seeking specialized items, such as furniture, bedding, tools, lawn equipment, and clothing for children, men and women.
Popular items, such as electronics, should be included in an online garage sale ad. Sellers must specify the type of electronics, such as an Xbox 360, instead of just video game consoles. An online garage sale ad must also include the number of items. A multi-family or neighborhood garage sale may attract more buyers than a single family sale.
