Default Re: The problem with Craigslist

I think results vary greatly with location. CL is just beginning to take off here. From what I've seen on other locations, there's a lot more activitie in more established areas.

Bottom line:

If you dig the bike and the price seems fair, buy it. If you're feeling hustled walk away.



If you go to sell ALWAYS bump it up a hundred or two from what you really want, so buyers have some room to talk you down -- always makes 'em feel good.



If your listing isn't selling then either you (a) have a crap model no one wants, (b) it's NOT in the shape you claim, or (c) you're a greedy ass bastard. Price it fair, it'll usually sell.

It depends. Sometimes the KBB values are a bit off - I priced my CX500 at what I'd seen them go for, and that was way over KBB value. I had a few people who emailed me telling me my price was ridiculously high. But I got a price much closer to what I was looking for than what they were offering.



So the first thing I would do is try to see what you see them selling for. If the seller's asking 50% more than what other sellers are, then they are too high. But if you never see someone actually asking or buying the bike for the KBB value, chances are it's the Blue Book's fault.



And once you have a good picture of what it's selling for, approach the seller with an offer. Worst they could do is say no - and if it really is overvalued, you'll have another chance to make him an offer a month later.

Once you get into old bike territory, like your CX500, the prices listed in KBB or NADA (if they even have them for a bike that old) are pretty worthless, because the condition of old bikes varies so much.



Even if you look at what other similar models are selling for, it's hard to determine a bikes condition through an ad. I have seen many "like new" or "excellent condition" bikes that obviously had hasty crash repairs done to them.
