WHY O WHY

Post by harry h on Wed May 10, 2017 5:29 pm

Why would someone come and view your motorhome you have for sale not bring a cheque book, agree a price leave a very small deposit (cash) then 2 weeks later advise that they can not get funds and offer less than half the asking price? Think it may be easier just going to a dealer.

I hope they're not getting their small deposit back!
After agreeing a price, a 10% non-returnable deposit would concentrate their mind.

I sold my Transit on eBay (sight unseen but a fair price). Several messages were exchanged agreeing what train to get etc. but after my "please confirm.... " message on the day before he was due, nothing. Not a sorry, no longer interested, just nothing. More annoying was I declined a cash buyer and eventually sold it a week later for a bargain prince...

Agree so annoying I seem to have wasted 2 weeks declining one other person from viewing. It was only £50 I should have known when he did not have bank cards for cash point either. Now trying to change original price of advert in sale section but don't seem to be able to. PS kept £50.

It happens Harry , my brother in law agreed the sale of his boat  for  £25,000. Buyer left a deposit of £300 , the max withdrawn from local cash machine . Balance to be paid following week on collection by suitable tow vehicle
       That was the last he saw of him, no contact no nothing despite trying everything to contact even if just to return his money for deposit. Theres nowt stranger than some folk.....

You can say that again. I will give it another try at a reduced price and add no time wasters. When we bought our latest Amethyst we went to view, agree price, shake hands, give deposit, book hotel for following week to collect, simple.
