The chances are that there are plenty of items around your home that are rarely used. These could earn you some valuable income.
Antiques and collectibles
These are the obvious place to start if you need to raise cash, but there are many other more mundane items that you could sell.
Old Smartphones and Tablets
When we upgrade to a new phone, we quickly forget the old one. A working iPhone 6 with 64Gb memory could fetch around £125 from a recycling website. A Samsung Galaxy S6 could be worth £110. Even older models are worth money. An S4 or iPhone 5 could be worth £50. How much cash do you have tied up in old mobiles and tablets?
The average household probably has several hundred pounds worth of laptops and computers that could be sold. If you do most of your browsing on a smartphone, could you manage without that laptop? A nearly new laptop with a decent specification could fetch up to £200.
Coffee Machines and Gadgets
Gadgets of all sorts can be a good source of ready cash. Good quality coffee machines can take up a lot of kitchen space and sell well on eBay and similar sites. Power tools also have good resale values.
Individual items may not fetch much unless they are exceptionally desirable. However, if you have a lot of furniture to get rid of, you may be surprised at what you could raise through an auction house.
Video Games and Consoles
If you have a fairly new PlayStation or XBox it could fetch around £200. A collection of games you don’t play anymore can also raise valuable cash.
Jewellery tends to hold its value if it contains precious stones and metals. If you don’t wear it and it has no great emotional value, then why hang on to it?
Young children grow out of clothes before they wear out. Sites like Loopster make it easy to exchange good quality children’s clothes for cash.
Just like clothes, kids outgrow their toys. If they are in good condition, there is a market for them, so why leave them cluttering the cupboards or garage?
Golf clubs, fishing tackle, cricket kits, bikes, and kayaks are all expensive to buy new. That’s why there’s a thriving second-hand market for good quality equipment in reasonable condition.
