@-57chevy I detect some bitterness in you comments about passing judgment on people's furniture, and some prejudice toward people on fixed incomes. You say people that are on fixed incomes or on a budget shouldn't shop Offerup. Why not? You complain about people passing judgment on other people's furniture and in the same breath you pass judgment on other peoples income! That not right! Many people in this country live on fixed incomes and they probably make up more than half the buyers on the site! If we did things your way we would have a lot of stuff for sale here and only a couple of buyers! Personally I don't judge by income! As far as furniture goes your is probably beautiful and emaculent, but I've been in the furniture repair business for a long time and have been on this earth a long time too, being made at a quality manufacturing company doesn't mean squat, its how the furniture was treated and taken care of after the purchase. While the name helps its not everything! A Rolls Royce left in the weeds of a back yard is still only worth the price of junk!

This is very true. However, u can increase the chances for a sale and avoid giving away fully functional electronics by focusing (or refocus) your target buyer. A good tip is to tune your descriptions and simplify your verbage, e.g. less tech specs and give ideas about the relevant usability of the device. a working laptop is still worth $100 to someone who NEEDS it, regardless of aesthetic appeal or technical features. Compare it to the alternative, which is subjective to the buyer. Hope this adds some insight. thx
