    Craigslist

    So I posted my HTC Evo 3D for sale on craigslist. I described it as well as I could.

    It has a screen protector, body glove case, no scratches on screen, otherwise in excellent condition. My asking price is 225 since it still has a clean esn with sprint, and within 10 mins of the post going live I get the usual texts....

    hey I saw the phone on craigslist, how much you want for it?

    I'll give you 100 right now for the phone.

    And the list goes on.

    Why is it so difficult to sell something on that site?

    Low ballers are frequent EVERYWHERE. I even get them on eBay where I can easily see the average going rate for a product. Lame..
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!

    Don't get discouraged, you will find a buyer. There are many dealers looking to fill inventory. I recently sold a vehicle that booked for 5k and the average offer was $1500.00. I was insulted, and actually had an issue with someone that came to give it a test drive. After they completely wasted my time and gas I recommended they go to the junk yard and try to buy just the wheels and tires for that price. Same with phone sales! To make a long story short I sent them to other CL ads that were more in their price range. Direct them to a "go phone" of some sort or any $20.00 phone. Impress upon them that this is what folks that don't have very much money can get. Be sure to reassure them that not having very much money is nothing to be ashamed of but your item is clearly out of their price range! You will see that they will want to pay full price just because you reinsulted them and tested their manhood.

    Well, I finally found a buyer and he works at a cricket store. We settled at 200 and couldn't be happier. Tomorrow I have to take my son to the doctor and that will help me out.
