I find Craigs List caters to such a small audience since it is more local. For lower cost more common vehicles I've had luck and the free add part made it easy to digest. I just don't get why there isn't a way to report flakes so you can check them out before you make appointments etc.. Flakes need to be held accountable and it hurts the sites accountability etc. It always amazes me how much time of yours they are willing to waste when I find it so easy to do the right thing. Never been on Facebook. Ebay at least has a wide audience. I prefer a 30 day listing over a 7 day auction. Many buyers may not be looking in that 7-day period. It is easier to lower your price than to raise it so you can always start at your target price and maybe put best offer. Sell the car as is and if it doesn't sell then try other options. In a few months I will be asking questions here about selling my convertible.Totally agree with the responses of how difficult FB and EBay are now. Craigslist I don’t even bother with. FB is really not any better. eBay screws the crap out of you with fees. On FB Mktplc, I had a set of FREE, yes, $0 rims and tires for a 94-95 Mustang GT I was trying to get rid of—I had 10 responses within 2 hours; then schedule, no show, schedule, no show…. Also there were the “is this still available:” messages where you reply yes, and they ghost you. I truly hate selling stuff today where I actually used to find it fun. I may just buy a dumpster and let the dirtbags sort it out from there.
