Selling the Car

January 27th, 2015 at 10:26 pm

I finally listed the Cobalt for sale last night. I already have 5 people coming out to look at it over the next several days!!

Keeping my fingers crossed that it sells. Have it listed for $400 more than I am really hoping for, so I'm pretty confident that I will get that I want, and it seems like it will go quick.

Had a lot more people comment on it and ask questions, and it hasn't even been listed for 24 hours yet. Haha, I should have asked for more.

It will be such a relief to be done with it, and be able to pay off most of the LOC. Drove it to town today and it's still running great. Vacuumed it out. Tonight we are changing the oil. Now I just need to give it a quick scrub.

I won't lie. I'm going to miss it. Such a quiet, smooth ride, and it has a lot more power than the Neon. Sigh.

As a side note, I am sick. Ugh. I didn't do much working today. I did take an hour nap, that felt great. Had to postpone client meetings until Thursday. Praying I get over it quickly.

    I think it means you priced the vehicle right that you have so many people interested. I hope you get the full amount! And feel better soon.

    Hope you're feeling better. Sleep helps recovery.

    If you believe you've underpriced the [Cobalt's] market, just take offers and keep explaining that you promised one of the earliest callers you wouldn't sell until she's had a change to 'drive down.' Ask potential buyers to write their phone number and offer. Who knows, you might create a bidding war!

    If you haven't done so, check KBB or one of the raters like CarFax so you don't under price yourself. You can always withdraw the ad and resubmit with a new price. If anyone asks, you can honestly tell them you made an error pricing the inital ad because you were ill and got confused.

    I think the car price is fair. I think people are just in a scramble because it's tax return season. I'm really not worried about getting a few more hundred out of it, but it would be nice to get the full ad price I listed. I didn't expect that much! Wish me luck.
