Very interesting subject. I did want to comment on having buyers come to your house for the purchase. I have had buyers come to my house to purchase items most of my life, and I'm 61. Yes, from time to time it can get a little scary with loco buyers, it does happen. Before the internet, it was newspapers, local flyers, and sale boards at the grocery store, etc. Back in the old days you had to have people come to your house. Besides, selling a riding mower online leaves you with limited options, that is unless you want to drive it up to your local McDonalds for a no show. Yes, the gentlemans comment on having a buyer call or text when they arrive at your residence is a great idea. I've done it for years and it works. I've had many of my friends ask me is it safe. The answer is yes and no. Common sense will dictate if you don't feel comforatable with having people stopping by your house, then it is not a good idea. In closing I will say, be safe, and do what your gut tells you.
Thank you! I’ve had a lot of these three-type scams, especially any time I’ve sold an iPhone! I appreciate your story about taking back your power, too! I have wasted umpteen hours on flakes! Great tips!
