The Pro Tips community forum just keeps getting better and better with so many amazingly helpful tips from all of you. Below is something we wanted to highlight as we have seen feedback on how helpful it is. Thank you again @JMS211 for sharing this with the whole community! The original reply with additional comments can be found here.
"I have begun putting the following on the top of my postings. Then I add all details of the item below. I have had several sellers send me a message saying they love it and will be doing the same to their items.
* Yes it’s available (if you are tempted to ask, don’t!)
* Do not make the offer if you are not going to follow through
* No trolls/just browsing/time wasters
* Location: (I add the street name only here) please map this street before you contact me to see if it’s within your driving distance
* Pick up times are weekends or at 7-730pm weeknights.
If this doesn’t work for you then do not make an offer, I have to make the times convenient for Me when I know I am available and home anyway doing those household chores.
You will pull into the “circle” on (street name) and then message me when here and I’ll open garage where the item is kept. It’s a small street so no need to give you my address too. Too many no shows on OfferUp to give the address
* CASH ONLY
* No holds
I am finding I am not getting questions anymore just the offers. Still not 100% no shows but at least I’m not waiting for anyone anymore. And if a question comes in where the answer is already in the ad I just won’t answer them."
We love hearing that it's worked out so well, and again, honesty is always the best policy. Hopefully, this tip from @JMS211 will prove to be helpful for all of you. Thanks again for sharing, and don't forget to add your own personal tips in the Pro Tips forum or comment below
