I price everything. If someone wants it they pay straight up or make an offer. The word "no" never hurt anyone (except a prisoner waiting for a "yes" from a governor). Buyers can be dicks too. Out takes from Hershey this year...
buyer: "How much?"
seller: "Ah, 3 bucks"
buyer: How about 2?"
seller: "I'd rather give your wife 2 dollars to drag you outa my space, bye..."
The seller was my pal that I share space with.
At another meet, and this puke lit me up man...
buyer: "How much" (a new pair of adj aluminum coilovers with mounts and springs)
seller (me): "I want $350, but make it 3 and take em with you."
buyer: "I'll go $200"
buyer: "Well you need the money, so..."
seller: "I do? Does it look like it to you? I wear $150 shoes and my 30 grand dually is [email protected]
#&in paid for too. Still seem like it? In fact, GFY M F'er, NOT FOR SALE. Take a fuggin hike."
I took the parts off the table and put em in the back of my truck. I wanted to wrap one of the shocks around his neck. A serious guy comes up seconds later taking note of Mr Swap Douche. "Are you really keeping them now?" "Nah, but screw that punk. You want em?" "I do, so how about 3 and a 1/4?" "Done, but wait there's more. If you act now you get top AND botom mounts, and if you didn't know, the springs are included." "That guy was an azzzhole. I'll take it".
It's not always fun selling or buying but I think those who do best simply know how to enjoy it. As far as trolling for a price, "If you're serious about selling you have my number." and walk away. Someone else will get your dollars.
