Here’s a few ways to sell your assets quick:

• Craigslist classifieds
Craigslist is a website that has an amazing viewership and community base. This site allows you to post any item you need to sell for FREE. There is no cost to buy or sell. Craigslist isn’t necessarily targeted so you will have to know what you are doing when creating your ad post. Of course you will have to price each item yourself, and some buyers on craigslist are untrustworthy. Some potential scams may arise out of what may seem like a legit transaction if you’re not careful. It may also take weeks to sell the item and you will need to store it the entire time as you await a buyer who will pay your asking price.
