My son is being posted overseas in the Army next week and had to sell his car. My advice to him was to understand that as much as he wanted to get a good price on the sale, any potential buyer would pony up only if HE though HE was getting a good deal. When I'm buying that's how I look at it. The buyer always has the upper hand.
The car sold in four days.
But you are correct that it is a **** economy, especially when it comes to non-essentials like sports cars, boats and vacation homes. Take some comfort in the fact that you are not trying to sell your multi-million dollar condo in Las Vegas.
