A private sale to watch
« on: November 30, 2013, 05:44:22 PM »
This is a good example of how a private seller could unload their unwanted merchandise. It's located about 40 miles outside of the Houston city limits. It'll be interesting to see how it it does.

Yeah, I just sent him an internal message about that. A $500 deposit will probably scare off a lot of buyers. He's a private seller. He really shouldn't even charge a deposit since most buyers will want to move everything immediately.

I sold a unit on VSA last week. I got lucky, the buyer showed up with a box truck and two laborers. They moved a 10X15 in about 20 minutes.

Lots of interesting stuff there! If I were closer, I'd be a buyer.

That's nothing. You should see this guy's reserve price. You'll never guess what it is. Let's just say this unit isn't going to sell, if it does, the seller hit the lottery.
