9. Price Goods Based on Condition

Seavey, our expert, likes to follow the 50-30-10 rule: She sells almost-new items at 50 percent of retail; slightly used items at 25-30 percent of retail; and used items at 10 percent of retail. Even if you believe something is worth more, think about what you would consider to be a bargain price; your back yard is not an antiques shop, and yard-sale browsers are there to get a deal.
