Selling a car can be a long and drawn out process. My personal experiences with selling cars have not been what I would call enjoyable. I have never bought a new car; I always
buy used cars because I can own them outright and avoid being strapped with a monthly car payment.
A few years ago, we sold our Nissan Sentra. The car was in good condition but we wanted to get a minivan because we were going to become parents for the first time. We decided
to list our car in the newspaper and sell it for $4,500.00. This was the Galves value for our car at the time. My husband and I thought that the price was fair because the car
was in good condition, had been well maintained, and had less than 100,000 miles on it.
The first person who looked at the car was a man in his mid fifties. First of all, he scheduled an appointment with us to see the car and was two hours late to the appointment.
My husband had planned the appointment around his lunch hour so that I wouldn't be alone with the man. My husband was very mad that the man did not call to say that he would
be late. The man finally showed up and looked at the car; he seemed less than impressed and did not even look the car over thoroughly. We never heard from the man after that day.
The second person who came to see the car was a sixteen year old girl; she brought her father with her because she was buying her first car and wanted his input on
the decision. She said that she didn't think that the car was cool enough for a sixteen year old. The father said that it was a safe and practical vehicle but in
the end, they did not end up buying our car.
Two months went by with very few calls about our car; we decided to lower the price of the car from $4,500.00 to $3,500.00. I did not like this idea but, it had to be done
so that we could sell our car to buy a minivan. We ended up selling the car to a woman, two weeks after we lowered the price. The whole experience was a nightmare for us;
next time I would rather just trade my car at a car dealership to avoid the hassles that we encountered.
