How long do I give a Momma to respond

If someone shows interest in something FSOT how long do I give her to respond before offering it to the next person who showed interest? I don't want to wait too long because #2 might lose interest but I don't want to be unfair to #1. Advice please.

Re: How long do I give a Momma to respond

It depends what you mean by "shows interest". If they just ask a question, ie, does it have stains, what is the weight range for this size, etc., I don't hold it at all. The first person to actually say "I'll buy it" gets it.

If they make me an offer and I make a counter offer, I give them about 12 hours to get back to me to say "deal".

If they actually say "I'll take it", I give them 24 hours to pay me before I move on. But I'd be sure to pm them and let them know that there is someone else who wants it so they need to pay by _____oclock or I need to move on.

That's my own personal little system. I'd be interested to hear how other sellers operate.

I will take your advice. I want to be fair to everyone.
