It is always said that fashion is often fleeting, and there’s no place where that is truer than in the Smartphone market. In fact, the market moves so quickly that the latest iPhone becomes somewhat outdated after a relatively short period of time.
Hipsters and gadget aficionados, who want to stay ahead of the trends, are always willing to sell their old iPhone to fund the purchasing of a new one.
If you’re one those people looking to raise the cash needed for the latest model, there are a number of ways you can sell your iPhone effectively and get a nice price for the effort.
Where Could I Sell my iPhone?
What is true in real estate is also true in iPhone resale. There are a number of sites where you can parlay your old reliable model (Hey, if it’s six months old; it’s old!) into cash for the new one.
Online Auction And Social Media Sites:
Craigslist or eBay are Internet traditionals, but Facebook and Twitter are incredibly good places to post a “for sale” notice.
The same is true for Pinterest where a visual representation of the product can be displayed.
Be reasonable. Yes, you love the little baby but that doesn’t sell anything. When you decide to market your iPhone be sure that the price quoted is within the bounds of another person’s budget.
Folks want a wee bit of a bargain when they are looking for used merchandise, so give them one. Be also willing to haggle just a bit on the price. It will make the final sale that much quicker.
Gadget Recycling Companies:
There’s a time when bartering becomes very boring and a bit of a nuisance. You don’t always want to have to drive a hard bargain; instead you want a quick way to sell your iPhone.
Luckily there are many gadget recycling companies that specialize in buying used iPhones. They’re a great option if you’re looking to sell your iPhone.
The beauty of the transaction is in the speed (you can get a quote and a deal sealed within a matter of minutes) and the delivery of cash, (done on the Internet via PayPal or sent via a cheque). This is particularly handy if you’re desperate to get your hands on the latest model.
Many companies offer good prices too – especially if your gizmo’s in good nick – so you should get enough dosh to nab yourself a newer model.
While there may be emergencies that necessitate the sale of the iPhone, for most people it is done to raise cash to buy the newer model.
Measures To Take Before You Sell:
That’s understandable because the latest one is ordinarily cooler than the last one. A smart thought is to get as much use of the old one as possible before you sell your iPhone, and be sure to clean out any personal stuff before putting it on the selling block.
Then, keep the new phone toy looking as spiffy as possible because its resale day may be just a few months away.
