Midnight Tuesday I listed my Suburban on Craigslist. I priced it for what I thought was a reasonable asking price knowing that if I priced it too high it would sit too long and if I priced it too low people would assume it was in terrible condition. I was also super honest in my ad detailing everything I knew was wrong with it, right down to the rust patch on the roof.
Wednesday afternoon someone came to look at it and went home thinking. I went home and posted my Craigslist ad on Facebook. Within 30 minutes I had another call on the suburban and within 90 minutes they agreed to purchase it full price. The next morning I had 2 more full price offers (one was the guy that went home thinking about it), 4 offers ranging from $1300-$1800 and 3 more inquiries. Once again I am shocked and amazed. You may recall the same thing happened with Dave's BMW, and his motorcycle.
With all the things I have had to get done over the past month and the armful of things I still have left to complete in the next 11 days I feel so blessed that the suburban sold so fast. In an economy like this with no one buying anything and gas prices dancing around $4 per gallon a quick sale on a suburban is nothing short of a miracle. One more tick off my list.
