Why Online Auctions Are The Way Of The Future

In today’s world, time is everything. We all think to ourselves, “I really need to get rid of ___________.” But who has time to list an item in a newspaper, have a yard sale, or even place the item in view of the public with a for sale sign on it?

Well, there is an answer. The internet has a way to sell your items that are colleting dust and taking up space. It is an online auction, like www.goFlish.com. The site lets you sell, or buy items without having you leave the comfort of your pc.

Newspapers were the way to go for so many years that for some it still seems like a good option, but think of it as a time sucking wallet shrinking investment. Every time you list an item in a local newspaper you have to pay for you listing, not to mention go to the newspapers business office to do it. This can be a big waste of time with a limited amount of people who will read your ad. If your item does not sell, you have to pay to re-list, it could be weeks and weeks before you get someone to buy your item.

Well what about yard sales? Most people work for a living and need their “off days” for family and friends. A yard sale is an investment in time, and in many towns you have to get a permit to have a yard sale, money spent. Then you also have to advertise your yard sale, more time and money, and you will never get anything close to what you paid for your items in a yard sale.

Last but not least is the placing the item in public view with a for sale sign on it. In some communities this is illegal. But let’s say that your community allows it, you as the seller only get a really limited amount of consumer viewing because only the people who drive by your home will see the item and let’s face it, who wants to have dinner interrupted with a knock on your door or a phone call asking about the item.

All these ways are tired, old ways of selling items, what if you could have access to 100s or 1000s of people and items with a click of your mouse? With online Auctions you can buy and sell just about anything and everything without leaving the comfort of your home.
