Watcha sellin'?
An electric piano. I've got someone willing to bring cash tonight.

I think I'm going to list our Thule Top Box next. We're cleaning house at my place, unfortunately, not to purchase a new motorcycle...

I listed an item for sale locally and have had 5 (3 serious) e-mails from interested people. How do you handle the sale? First with $$ wins, or do you let the first to contact have first dibs?

Definitely, the first to hand you the cash. I wouldn't wait on anyone. I've dealt with lots of "Interested" parties who never come forward to actually buy.

Re: Ebay/craigslist deals/finds

First with cash. I would state that in any future ads too.

I stirred up quite a sh%^&t storm selling my old Miata last year that I could have prevented by stating that. And also that far-off buyers would not receive special treatment. I did what was best for the buyer, the jilted would-be buyer and myself but got a lot of grief for it.

Re: Ebay/craigslist deals/finds

Well, just after I receive the "I want it" from prospective buyer #4, I sent a message to prospective #1 (who'd asked a bunch of info and seems interested). I told him he had first option in an e-mail. About 5 minutes later buyer #4 said "I'll pay you cash tonight".

I plan give #1 an hour to get back to me, but #4 is top on the list right now since he's coming with cash, tonight. Then prospective buyer #3 tells me he wants to come tomorrow to see it.

I just don't want to be labeled a D!ck by someone that doesn't know me. (I know I'm asking for it saying that here...)

I can definitely say, it must be priced to go. 5 prospective buyers in less than 48 hours..??

But once someone gets to know you, they're gonna find out that you're a dick anyway. What's the point?

I saw one parked at my kid's elementary school this morning. It's the first that I've seen up close. What I don't understand about them though, is that they make them out to be such great gas savers. I think they say they average around 36mpg or so (I may be off a little on that). IMHO, that's not that great for a car that small. Heck, I remember some of the years of the Geo Metros where getting just over 50mpg, and they were considerably larger. Seems to me, a car like this aughta be getting 60+.

Especially with only a 6.5 gallon gas tank.
