The sad fact is there are people who are selling things because they’ve fallen on hard times. They may have a bill due soon or under some time constraint to get cash. Many people are only looking to flip the item you have for sale. I recommend listing your items at a price with room to negotiate. I tend to avoid those people who troll late at night. If you’re selling something large from your house, use caution. Before I moved I sold a ton of things on OfferUp and other apps. I would give them a street corner to meet at first. It isn’t difficult to meet them at the end of the block. This allows you to check them out first. Making sure you don’t reveal your address to someone who doesn’t intend on showing or buying. Meeting at your home should only be done with your really large items ie furniture. Have someone with you at home also. I’ll use more caution when negotiating or meeting with people who have yet to earn any ratings. They are more likely the ones who no show. OfferUp is a great tool for selling and buying just use common sense.
