Take Your Used Stuff to the Bank with Any on of These Resale Apps

It doesn’t have to be springtime to get the urge to “Marie Kondo” your apartment home—yes, we just used the famous Japanese organizing consultant, author, and TV host as a verb! One of the best ways to purge your home of extra material belongings you no longer want need, or “spark joy,” you can turn to tools as simple as an app on your smart device of choice.

Whether you just want to get rid of some stuff in your closet or have a knack for shopping vintage finds, there are ways to make substantial cash with these types of applications. Just one problem –there are so many resale apps to choose from now. So, how do you know where to start? Never fear! Greenhouse Apartments has got your back, and we’ll take you through the resale apps we’ve had the most success with on a personal scale. Check it out!

OfferUp

As one of the earlier resale apps, OfferUp was launched in 2011 and has been considered as a local version of eBay. The app describes itself as a virtual garage sale, with the ability to easily list clothing, shoes, electronics, home goods, and even used cars. Communication can happen seamlessly between buyers and sellers through the app’s secure messaging. Best of all, you don’t have to go far, because OfferUp shows you exactly what you’re searching for right in your own neighborhood.

letgo

Surfacing four years later in 2015, letgo is already worth over 1 billion dollars. Pretty crazy for an application that sells used stuff, right? If you want to make some money of your own, this application is a great place to start. The app has become a worthy competitor of Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist to buy or sell used products. Like OfferUp, letgo lists all the items based on location. Oh, and did we mention that it’s free? So, all the money you make will go directly into your checking account. Cha-ching!

ThredUp

You’ve probably heard it mentioned on a podcast or by your favorite Instagram influencer already, but ThredUp is a great resale app for the buying and selling of women’s and kids’ clothes! You can shop over 35,000 brands from Gap to Gucci –and if we’re being quite honest, we weren’t even aware there were that many clothing and accessory brands out in the world! ThredUp guarantees 1000+ new arrivals every day that boasts up to 90 percent off the original retail price. It really is the best choice for guilt-free, sustainable shopping!
