Spruce Up Your Home this Spring (and Earn Money While You Do It)
With Americans spending most of their time at home now, home décor and comfort have become incredibly important. In fact, online marketplace OfferUp recently found that 58% of Americans redecorated their homes last year with items to make their living spaces more comfortable and functional, TV Host, Lifestyle Expert and Interior Designer, Evette Rios, teamed with OfferUp and YourUpdateTV to discuss new design trends and the perks of using resale marketplaces.

Because people are spending so much extra time at home, Americans have become increasingly focused on how to make their living spaces work best for them - and shopping for home goods and furniture on resale marketplaces like OfferUp is one of the easiest ways to do that.
According to OfferUp’s Annual Recommerce Report, 35% of Americans purchased home products on resale apps last year, and the average American saved $400 by doing so.
People are turning to resale marketplaces to find the perfect furnishings for incredible deals, as well as vintage and homemade items. . . OfferUp is also a great place to shop for hard-to-find items that may not be available elsewhere, like desks and chairs. If you can’t find something at a store or online, chances are someone in your community might be selling it on OfferUp.
Selling your unused things in an online marketplace is a great way to declutter your home quickly this spring and earn extra income, either to make ends meet or to support a side hustle. With OfferUp, all you need is a phone, so it’s as easy as snapping a picture of what you want to sell and adding a price. When listing an item, post great photos and descriptions, price items fairly, and take advantage of what people are currently interested in.
To start buying and selling today, download the OfferUp app in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store or visit www.offerup.com.
