. If you are a furniture flipper who wants to make money selling your pieces, here are 5 Ways To Make Money Flipping Furniture the easy way.
Flipping furniture is a great way to furnish your home on the cheap but it can also be a great way to make money or a full-time income.
When people think about flipping furniture, they usually think about painting a piece of furniture or making over a piece of furniture in order to sell it. However, there are several other ways to make money flipping furniture.
5 Ways To Make Money Flipping Furniture
Buy used furniture at garage sales, thrift stores, or online marketplaces and then refinish or restore it to sell for a higher price.
This is the most obvious way to make money flipping furniture. Learning how to transform furniture pieces and bringing them up to date or more relevant for the current time is a sure way to make money flipping furniture. People will pay premium prices for one-of-a-kind and/or custom pieces of furniture. It’s important to develop a good eye for design and quality and to understand the market and what sells. Building a reputation and a loyal customer base is also key to success in the furniture flipping business.
I created a course that has all the information you need to start and/or grow a furniture flipping business. I put my knowledge and over 20 years of experience into this course to ensure you are doing all the right things in your flipping business. You can find all the information about the course HERE.
Look for unique or vintage pieces that can be sold at a premium to collectors or antique enthusiasts.
Unique furniture pieces and vintage furniture pieces are sought after by many people. If you can find these pieces at a low cost and then turn around and sell them for profit, it is one of the easiest ways to make money flipping furniture. The hardest part about this is finding those pieces and a price point that you can turn around and make a profit. It can be done. I have done it a few times. Those pieces are just harder to find at a price point that leaves room for a profit on the other side.
Create custom furniture or home decor items to sell to specific niches or individuals.
This is a great way to make money flipping furniture. If you can offer custom work to furniture pieces, people will pay a premium for that. Once you start flipping furniture, you will find that people will reach out to you and ask if you can makeover/paint/refinish a piece they have. They will have an idea or a look they want and ask you to do the work. You can command a higher price point for custom pieces. It is something to think about as you get into this business.
Do you want to offer this service? If you aren’t sure, try it out with a family member or friend first. See how it goes. Take note of what you liked and didn’t like. Inside my course, I give you the custom form you should hand out with every one of these jobs so that all your bases are covered before the work even begins. Learn more about the course HERE.
Use social media or online marketplaces such as Facebook Marketplace, eBay, or Etsy to reach a larger audience and sell your flipped furniture.
Social media and online sites are amazing ways to make money flipping furniture. You can curate an online presence and audience on so many sites and then sell your pieces to those people. It is such a smart way to market any business and something I am really passionate about helping others do.
I started a private community for furniture flippers where I coach and teach them every month how to grow a business the right way. It includes a community of flippers and more one-on-one coaching/teaching of starting, growing, and scaling a furniture flipping business. We talk a lot about how an online presence and growing social media accounts around your business can really catapult and grow your business beyond applying paint and stain to furniture. There are so many other ways you can be making a great income with your flipping business. Find all the information about my private community HERE.
You can also consider setting up a physical store/shop to sell your furniture.
Selling in a shop or a different “physical” location is another great way to make money flipping furniture. Some ideas for this are: a booth inside a bigger store, opening your own brick-and-mortar, setting up a space at a flea market, etc. There are many ways to set up a physical spot to sell your pieces.
