best way to sell a car fast??
 
We've listed on CL, FB, yardsale pages etc for well under kbb value. People are seriously low balling (its a $3000 vehicle according to kbb (good condition, not great or excellent), our BEST offer has been $1400). We've tried going to dealerships and mom and pop shops, they won't pay more than $500 since its an older model :banghead: the only person who has offered to pay close to what we're hoping to get said he wouldn't have the money until friday, but we'll already be gone by then. We don't know what to do. It needs to be sold by tomorrow, but $1400 is just ridiculous.

Oh and kbb trade in value is $1900 which is why we tried selling to car lots. Hoped they would at least beat CL.

CL is rarely the way to go.

Do you have a local CarMax? They are usually pretty fair in pricing....

That's a car dealership that advertises buyback.... my sister and a local friend have both sold cars to them - in both instances they were not purchasing a new car from CarMax and CarMax gave them a very fair price. :goodvibes:

I looked last night. Closest one is 2 states away :(

One of DH's buddies volunteered to watch it and sell it for us if it doesn't sell today. We relisted on CL and also eBay classifieds ( :thumbsup: thanks for the tip!).

Honestly, we always found that cars are similar to houses in regards to...they are worth what someone will pay. I would probably sell for the best offer just to get rid of it. It's hard when you know what they value on something should be.
