    I know that feel bro, trying to sell a Camry in Aus right now and it's nothing but poos lowballing me and wasting my time, and literally none of them read the ad.
    I use to write nice detailed ads, the kind of ads I'd want to see, but these days it seems if you have more than a few sentences that's too much effort for them to read.
    I cottoned on eventually that when they just send you a block of text with questions you've already answered in the description, it's just a flipper/dealer copypasting it to everyone, and then when you answer they offer you half what you want.

    The last "cheap" car I sold, I had to stoop to the normalgay NPC level, none of this nice picture from every angle and interior photos, or well written ad, nah literally just 2 photos of the outside, photo of the dash, and basically wrote RUNS GUD, NEED WHEEL BEARINGS and sold it in less than a week for close enough to what I wanted. The Black person still tried to negotiate when he came to pick the car up, after looking at it already, agreeing to a price, and leaving a deposit, like what the frick.
    I fricking hate society.

    It's shit like this that has put me off buying cars over the last several years, because I hate the idea of having to sell them again when I'm bored with them and go through all this BULLSHIT again.

    Like others said, if you're firm on $850, list it for $1000 and let some moron think he won by negotiating down to your real price.
    idiot questions
    Simply ignore them, or reply back with "read the ad, I've already answered that".

    Also, you have to realize its an $850 car. Only the brokest frickin morons are going to be shopping for a sub-$1000 car. Thats who your clientele are. Last car I sold I had 3 buyhere payhere dealer representatives show up trying to buy it for half what I listed too while pretending not to be a dealer. Its how they get around certain rules or whatever by lying to sellers.

      best advice. get a canned response on your clipboard to send out to anyone asking a moronic question. block anyone that follows up with nonsense, or offers well below the asking price. set your shitbox higher and then get "talked down". idk how old you are but no one on the planet does classifieds like this anymore, and the kinds of people you're bringing to your ad certainly aren't going to just pay you what you ask, reasonable or not

      850 is well into the realm of scrap value
      wtf are you even bothering
      why not part it out on ebay?

      I would have too much attachment to any of my shitboxes to sell them for scrap unless they're no longer roadworthy, so I understand wanting to pass on a some cheap old car to some kid that needs a cheap old car

      >sell shit

      I actually had to do this when I was renting out a room in my share house. We generally have the cheapest rent in the suburb whenever we need a room filled and initially advertised at that price. All sorts of weirdos, no-shows, what I can only assume are sociopaths etc would show interest.
      Bumped the advertised price up $75 bucks a week and all of a sudden normal people started coming through, I'd surprise them by telling them the rent is $300 bucks less than they thought and the room was filled in no time.

      I personally was poor for most of my 20's so I like to pass on a good deal and give people a chance but when you're dealing with bargain basement prices you get a LOT of bargain basement people.

      This is the car. It runs, drives, is registered. I want 850. That is MORE than reasonable and I priced it so low because I want it gone. I can get around 350 in pure scrap value, has 4 decent tires. So someone would be paying only 500 in extra money for a running driving fricking car.

      I mean how hard is it? I get extreme lowball offers (someone literally called me and said he'd give me 400 as if he's doing me a favour - I just hung up).

      I think the real issue is that it's so cheap only the poorest brokest morons are interested. I never had this many problems selling actual decent cars for thousands.

          This ad sucks. It's an incredibly generic reading of the marketing specification of 1984

          Now do you understand why people just lease vehicles these days? After you're done with it you just drive it back to the dealership and drive away with a brand new vehicle, no questions asked.

          Once again, another great example of how Brown people ruined a previously high trust institution.
          Personally, I've never come across a time wasting boomer (other than the ones that list their junk for way too high.)

          I saw someone here say once - everything that Europe gives shit at Americans for (guns, driving distances, single family homes, fast food drive through, litigation - it's basically all a result of trying to stay away from Black folk (and spics).
          Unfortunately, we are unable to avoid them online, the government literally gives them free phone and internet to shit up our spaces.
          Imagine how much more productive we'd be without Indians scamming or time wasting?

          Remember the golden days of the white man's forum, compared to any 14 year old with broken English posting junk on a Facebook group?
          The Lebanese ruined most Australian import car pages with their petty drama and inability to answer a technical question. Any serious topic was detailed by their low iq humour, they couldn't leave anything untouched.

          Fricking hate that term, Indians use it here, too. Then no matter how you respond, they offer way lower than trade in value that I can get no hassle from a dealer. I will never sell or buy from an Indian or Arab.

          If only there was some way to keep foreigners from moving to your country, and to get them to leave. Something like a boarder, and requiring them to pay for every product or service they use while in the country, and fines/jail/deportations and executions for crimes committed by them

          Nations have this until you get too many israelites. America and Australia had this up until the mid 60s. Paradise.

          Protip: any decent respectable person can afford new cars cash, and used cars buyers are almost all lowlifes. It's worth "wasting" the money to buy (and then total) new cars every few years simply to avoid having to deal with lowlife Craigslisters, minimum wage "technicians", service people, etc.

          99% of humanity is simply not worth interacting with. If you value your time, sanity, etc. you will eventually realize this. Why do you think billionaires build private escapes and buy islands to get the frick away from the rest of humanity?

          True, somewhat. It's more so that you need to heavily discriminate.

        Did that selling my first (and last) thing on ebay. Just a small vintage carburetor. Dude wanted to haggle me down to 50% off, so I did. Then he started complaining that $20 was too much for shipping, so I raised my price again and put free shipping. He messaged me again explaining I could ship it some other way for $16 and asked for the original price, last time being a reasonable man asking for reasonable shipping. I raised the price again. Some other dude bought it 2 weeks later at my inflated price and "free" shipping.

        Its a 2-way street of "is $10 really worth it to you?" but also, no. If I'm the one going to the fricking post office, getting tape, getting a box, shipping it to your dumbass, wrapping stuff in paper or bubble wrap, you're going to pay the extra $2 to make sure it gets there safely. If my price was totally off (2 total on ebay, mine was half the price of a working carb) then tell me with a link or two and see if I'll be reasonable to match or come down to a more reasonable price. But don't start nitpicking over $1-5, I'm just going to raise my price for having to deal with you. If it doesn't sell I don't care.

        Believe me, that car wasn't going to sell anyway, I just got excited and anxious. I know because I've been lurking the second hand market of that very particular model for the past two years and I keep seeing the same ads slowly going down in price without ever disappearing. In fact that same car I wanted to buy is still there, unsold, with an updated mileage, lower price, but still no pictures of the back.
