Still batting 1000 on craigslist.com. First is was the Coleman pop-up trailer I sold for $4,500. Then a black leather sofa for $800, then a nice mountain bike ($350). There’s more: in each case, these items were sold for cash on the same day I listed them, for free.
This morning, ’bout 11:30 am, I placed an add to sell my two first gen iPhones, an 8 gig ($100) and a 4 ($75), firm, cash only. I handed off the 8 gig inside an hour, and it was so easy, I upped the price on the 4 to $100 and was flooded with responses. All in all, $200 and both are done deals within a couple of hours.
I understand the lure of an auction to get the most the market will bear, but there’s a huge value to me of not having to take hardly any time at all, and to have a done deal and cash in hand within hours.
