Put a car up for sale the other day and all I keep getting is stupid offers. One guy turned up today had a drive and said £400 mate ermmm no it's up for £650... WTF ::wall:
But thats the thing I have it would of been £800 without the small problems but decided to knock abit off so asked £650 but he didnt get that. I even ended up saying I'll knock 6 months tax off as it's due end of next month so £575 but nope never replied.I think you should expect to have to move a bit on price. I'm sure you do the same when you buy a car either from a garage or private sale?
Agree totally especailly if it has issues too.To be honest a £400 bid on a £650 car isn't bad, nobody turns up and pays asking unless it's really worth it and there is a que of people. The difficult bit is getting them to turn up
"sense of reality" nick_mcuk - did you had the HPOE training a few years backAgree totally especailly if it has issues too.
I bought the Jeep for £775 it was up for £950.
I think you need a sense of reality here....whilst you are being honest and telling a potential buyer there are some issues they dont know you from Adam and its a risk on their part.
If he offered you £400 you should have gone back with a counter offer untill you met at a mutually agreeable figure.
Lol HPOE is constantly in use here at work. Do you work for the "big X" too?"sense of reality" nick_mcuk - did you had the HPOE training a few years back
To the OP, I completely agree with the others though. Expect to have a bit of negotiation. If £650 is what you want, I would be advertising at £795 ish.
Remember you can only negotiation down, not up!
