LONG TERM CAR ADERTiSEMENTS

I often look through the cars that are advertised on the right hand side of the oldholden page. Not because I want to buy I don't have any spare cash, I just dream on. There are always a couple of cars that have been advertised mainly on eBay for months on end. I can't help thinking is there something wrong with these cars? Should there be a time limited on how long you can advertise a car. Cars that are good value don't last long, cars that are suspect may take a little longer, any thoughts cheers

I reckon some of the ones that 'never sell' the owners are just showing the world "hey look what I have and you haven't" thats why those cars do not sell, my theory anyway, Lindsay.

For example a very well known 161 HK Monaro 3 speed you know the one.

..HEE,HEE..a mate of mine has a pushy Mrs..."sell that waste of money" she says. "No worries dear, I bung it on E-bay right now".

..."But it may take a while to sell"..... ;)

Yeah it will take a while to sell with the price he put on it.

My uncle doesn't want to move and his wife does.
He agreed to sell to "make her happy". He set the price to a nonsense figure way above market value. His house has been on the market for 2 years with no interest :)

I have noticed that many are also re-listed cars....sometimes for up to three or four times too, and they mainly seem to be because of tyre kickers. perhaps some are bogus bids from fake accounts designed to push up the price, but the vendor ultimately ends up stuck with their own bids in the end.

If your project doesn't work, look for the part you didn't think was important.

They stuff themselves up if they end up with their own dummy bid as the highest. Technically they've sold the car so immediate $40 sale fee (or whatever it is these days, it's been years since I sold a car on ebay) plus the selling percentage fee. Can cost you a coupla hundred $$ if you dummy bid your own too high.

The maximum fee for selling a car is $45 on ebay with a $19.95 listing fee, there is no percentage fee as well.
Fees for any ebay sale (except cars) are 7.9%, capped at $100.

Old is good.

Cheers for that info. It's been years since I sold a car on ebay, so I couldn't quite remember.

If something isn't selling it's because the price is too high.

Simple.
