I love this concept, like used certified car model for furniture - although maybe the 1 sentence description needs simplification no? Why point the conversation to pros? On marketing perspective it arises questions as you point the conversation to why pros? what makes them pros? unwanted? Instead the business model could be greatly benefited if you can convert/convince people to sell pricey furniture even if its currently unwanted... remove the negative context ? I think this has potential! Good job!

Furnishare helps you sell your used furniture instead of posting it on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. They will come to your home, inspect and pickup your furniture, bring it to their warehouse and post it on their website. From there, if someone purchases it they will handle the shipping and cut you in on the sale price (50% rev share). This totally beats arranging to have people you don't know from Craigslist come over and look at your furniture to buy it and pick it up. Less money, likely. But about 97% less hassle.

hmmm....there's something here, but 50% rev share might not be enticing enough for sellers

@beckerjs I thought the same thing at first. But the # of times I try and get a decent price and deal with the communication from a bunch of people asking questions. Sometimes I even resort to just giving it away after a while. I'd be much happier having them take it off my hands and send me something.

@kristofertm Even a 60:40 seller:app share seems more reasonable. 50:50 just sounds too greedy

@kristofertm : Interesting thought. I totally see the value in that 👍

@tom_pryor @kristofertm : reading a 60:40 split makes me feel much more valued as a furniture seller than 50:50 so I totally agree with you

Love the concept. Hate selling this stuff, so much hassle, so many texts, false starts, etc
