Default why dont vehicles get prices when posted for sale???

my father just sold a truck at the swap meet for 17000.00 and asked me to look on here for a potential car or truck? i am just amazed at some of the cars without prices that may just be what he WAS looking for , however i passed them up and didn't even ask the famous question >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>HOW MUCH<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< . just venting not a big deal i just question the reason behind 'not pricing' the car you 'want' to sell ? perhaps they dont know what they want/ dont know what its worth/want to display not really sell/looking for more than its worth and hope an idiot makes an offer for an unreal price/ or perhaps another reason ????????????? needless to say he purchased a car from craigslist instead that i found for him. guess what ???? it had a price and he got full asking price. i am not bitching i cant afford much ,let alone high dollar stuff, but its nice to look and see what different vehicles are going for? i realize the economy is tuff but if you want to sell, PUT A PRICE! i bet real buyers pass cars buy on here for that fact. i cant imagine a swap meet or car lot without prices? OKAY ILL SHUT UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS

Default Prices

Same on parts,Im always looking to purchase parts on here but alot of people refuses to post prices with parts- If I have to email for parts I pass-You also can eliminate most of the tire kickers with the price-Just another opinion-

I totally agree. I usually do not waste my time on a item w/ no price because it is too high or they are flakey. It is annoying because the PRICE is the main critera for the phone call in the first place... obviously if the car is too high priced or the seller is out of thier mind, I will not waste the time call.

Default Prices

You all missed the biggest obstacle of all!!! If you list the price you will pay that for an honor payment.........or not!!!! They don't price it to say they sold a $100 part not a $4000 part. Just my opinion. You also see guys leave a zero off large ticket items.

You have a point, there are a lot of tight A$$'s out there who don't want to be fare with others and are always looking for a way to One Up a person or situation....

but for the small fee requested by RJ for selling an item on the site isn't enough to break the bank.

But FYI:::
Prior to marking your item sold, you should edit the the listed selling price to the actual selling price agreed upon between yourself and the buyer, then list the item sold and submit honor payment.

I never list an item sold until I have received the money, So many of these jokers on here say, hold that part for me, I will send you the cash tomorrow. The only problem is you not for sure what tomorrow the buyer is talking about. Yesterdays tomorrow, tomorrow's tomorrow Etc...
