Everyone loves a home run. No, I’m not talking about when the ball goes over the outfield fence and the batter can trot around the bases… I’m talking about the reseller’s home run! When you buy something for super cheap, and then flip it for huge profits. I love finding a book for a quarter, and then selling it for $50 just a few weeks later. I’ll never forget the rush of buying 5 brand new vintage video games for $25 each, and then selling them for $350 each! Home runs can be the fuel that keeps a reseller in the game.
I want to let you in on a secret tool that I use to help me find home runs. It’s called The Home Run Guide and it’s absolutely the best book for finding those hidden (and not so hidden) home runs. This book is a collection of articles written by many different reselling experts. I have referenced the Home Run Guide countless times when I’ve been at garage sales, thrift stores, and estate sales. I have the mobile version on my Kindle AND iBooks app (just in case one of those apps crashes). I can easily bring up the information I need to make sure what I have in front of me is indeed a home run.
The Home Run Guide is broken up into Volume One, Two and Three. All three are excellent and I highly recommend them. Volume One is 490 pages full of useful information to help you find home runs. That’s not a typo… 490 pages. Volume Two is equally impressive at 369 pages. The authors who write each section of The Home Run Guide go into great detail so that you can get the most information and make the best buying decision. They include pictures, as well as what to definitely buy and what to never buy.
In The Home Run Guide, you’ll learn so many new things to be on the lookout for. It’s mostly focused around eBay sales, but many of what you learn can be applied to Amazon as well. Here is just a small sample of what is in the Home Run Guide:
Details About What to Buy – Books, Children’s Books, Toys, Plush, Kitchen Items, Home Items, Puzzles, Board Games, Electronic Toys, Craft Supplies, Toy Trains, Harley Davidson Memorabilia, Coke Memorabilia, and tons more!
Tips and Tricks – Negotiation Skills, Clearance Sale Tips, Garage and Estate Sales Tricks, Rummage Sales, Thrift Stores, IFTTT, a guide to shopping at Target, an intro to Sales and Use Tax, and so much more!
You can buy each volume individually, or you can buy them both together and get a discounted rate. I promise you that The Home Run Guide will pay for itself over and over again.
