Check market value and make sure you're not expected too much for what you're selling. Also, indicate in your ad that you will not be responding to lowball offers.
I find try to find a direct family member that will appreciate it for free.
That's what I was thinking. Thanks for the input.This thread's re-inspired me to get off my duff and get the writeups done tonight.People are gonna low-ball you no matter what you put in your listing, just ignore them. But, coming off harsh might actually scare a real buyer away.
For one or two items, I've decided to state the price is firm (because I'm not really certain I want to sell them). On others that I have decided to be a little flexible on, is it enough to not state it's firm?
Is it even worth mentioning not to lowball, or just outright ignore the responses?
All I do is list the condition, reason why I'm selling, and then state the price and that the deal is cash only, local pickup. If you decide to be flexible on price, wait a few days, then add that to the description when you renew the listing. No reason to encourage lowball offers from the start.
