Re: Craigslist annoys me

Yeah, of course you get low ball offers. That's how negotiations work. You list the item for more than you actually want to get. Then they make a low ball offer. Then you counter with something else.

So, you list for $120, they offer $80, you counter with $100, they accept and everyone walks away feeling like they go a good deal.

In my experience, while that might feel like a bigger hassle, that will usually get rid of the item faster than waiting for someone who is looking to pay $100 flat. People like to negotiate.
