Like saying 'make me an offer', hoping to get an impulsive buyer to pay more than market value, dishonest advertising.
Here does it say that? This is all the text there is for the ad.Like saying 'make me an offer', hoping to get an impulsive buyer to pay more than market value, dishonest advertising.
Like I said above, I'll throw an insulting (maybe) offer and see how they respond, then point out they didn't have a price so that's why I started low. It usually gets them to say what they want, and even gets them down to the lowest they will go, right away, no BS'ing about this and that, bottom line, what is it? It saves me and them the hassle of dancing around trying to be polite and not step in their toes.Those are the worst, I won't even throw an offer. Who's to say what you're vehicle is worth? If the owner has a real number in mind, and it's not close to what you value it at. We play the insult game, a no win situation. No thanks!
I was making a point, no price or 'not sure what to ask for it' really means the seller is hoping to sell it for as much $ as they can get, unless the car is part of a deceased estate and the seller doesn't have a clue about the value. In this case, however, they have a valuation to go by. I agree with making a fair offer, low-balling just means you're not serious. Putting a price in the ad stops all the 'how much is it?' emails, and one cannot make a fair judgement on condition/value with only a few photos and a short description.Here does it say that?

Yeah,they need a price, otherwise smart asses like me call and offer $1500 US. I mean, it's just an old car, right?
"Valued at $x,xxx in 1999" or something like that might help, a full picture of the appraisal would be nice too.
I get what you mean, I was taking you a bit too literally.low-balling just means you're not serious.
