    There seems to be a simple solution for this...

    I've had these also the extreme low ball, and with the frequency it happens I have to imagine these people just browse CL and throw out random shitty offers and eventually 1 takes and they get a good deal. It may even be their stream of income, then they go resell it.

    I met a commercial real estate broker many years ago. John told me that back in the day of the want adds he and his friends would work the following scam. They would sit on the adds for a week.
    Friend 1 calls - "Still for sale"? Lowball offer waaaaaaaay low and gets turned down
    Next day, friend 2 calls and shoots a barely higher offer and gets turned down
    Wait two days and John calls with an offer slightly higher and the seller would usually feel like they were getting a good price and agree.

    I wonder if that's why a lot of responses today start with, "Is it still for sale?" so they can instantly gain the upper hand.

    My standard response to a lowball offer is to ask them, "Can you tell my how you arrived at that being a fair offer?" When they splutter and say, "Well that is all I have/want to spend", I tell them that I will contact them after a few weeks if the item hasn't sold. If they then start to raise their price or still want to come see it, I'll usually say that it isn't worth my while to consider showing it to someone who doesn't want to/can't pay the appropriate price and that I will hang on to their contact info.

    I never negotiate, like Joel, until they have looked at the item. 90% of the time I price my items with a fair price and get my asking price.

    I miss the days of the Penny Trader where there were some awesome deals.
  3. In Topic: Wanted. Sell Me Your Lift Table!

    OK, let me take a picture and get it out there. One slight hiccup is that Condor didn't release the lift when they said they would, so I just emailed them to find out the timing.

    Dern, what you willing to offer? I have a nice Chinese one with a slight leak at check valve (I didn't tighten it correctly when I rebuilt it). Pick up in Apple Valley.

    I'm going to the Condor combo lift when it comes out.
  5. In Topic: Kidde Recals 40 Million Home Fire Extinguishers

    I had 5 that were recalled. I received 1 replacement so far and returned one bad. According to FEDEX there are two more arriving today. I'm guessing Kidde is trying to spread them out so they don't get sued by the one person at the end of the list because others, like me, needed multiple replacements.

    Thanks for the original post Brad, that was the first I heard about it.
