Jacksonville Florida Craigslist is a well know website among local Floridians. In fact, it is the first place that people look when they are interested in buying a used car. There is no doubt that you can find cheap cars, whether you are looking for a Toyota Camry or Ford F150 Pickup Truck. Here you will find everything from late models to classic cars, from $500 to $50,000. No matter what you are trying to sell or buy your car for, you are sure to find someone who is interested. Throughout the years Craigslist has built a solid reputation for being one of the best sources when it comes to buying a used car.
How much should I expect for my used car?
There are several factors that determine the amount of money that you should expect when selling a used car on Craigslist Jacksonville FL. Personally I argue that it is all about timing. You can get several hundred dollars more for your vehicle if you sell it within prime time of car sales. For most people this is January through April. The second biggest factor is the overall condition of the car. In general, a car that is in excellent condition and looks great will sell much faster and for much more than one in bad shape in need of TLC. There are several other factors that determine your financial success when selling a car. One of these factors is your location and the current book value. While local competition is perhaps the greatest determinate of price, the book value can often be of assistance when trying to determine a fair asking price.
Why do so many people on craigslist not show up?
If you have ever tried to sell anything on craigslist you probably have ran across your fair share of individuals who say they will come take a look at your car and never show up. Don’t get discouraged when this happens to you. It is a part of selling automobiles. Set you expectations low when dealing with the general public and you will not be disappointed. Keep in mind that the average person has the attention span of a 3 year old. It could be that they spotted another car on the way home and decided to check it out. It could be that they have no money but are still out shopping. The possibilities are virtually endless when it comes to dealing with people. You never know what you may run into.
A buyer gave me a bad check for my car, what do I do?
If you accepted a bad check from a buyer then you are most likely out of luck. The title has been signed over and it will be very difficult for you to collect the funds. For this reason it is very wise to only accept cash for any used car transaction. Cash is always (usually) good and you will not have to worry about getting paid in the end. In short, simply learn from this lesson and move on.
