I just sold an old Airstream, and had it listed on one of our sister sites, the Air Forum. Though my buyer just happened to come from Craigslist.

I'd sell DH, but I think I've got too much invested to let him go for market. Sunk cost fallacy and all that.

ebay is awful. Geared towards buyers, not sellers. Auctioned 2 iphones recently. 3/4 auctions the buyers did not pay! So I reported them as non-payers. . . my account was put on restriction! No $hit.

When I first joined here some posters were complaining about illiquid securities they wished they didn't own. I thought there was no risk, and offered to buy somewhere around 2/3 of a conservative fair value. They disappeared, and did not sell to me anyway.

I am not as day to day tight as some here, but I am very careful and conservative about parting with cash for real estate or investments of any kind.

Overall, unless you are just trying to save yourself some hassles and want to get rid of something with very little utility to you, I think this would be a tough crowd to market to. Margin lives in lack of transparency.

I prefer to buy stuff from people who are living above their means. They might be selling some nice stuff.

If somebody living below their means is selling something, it's likely to be worn out, obsolete, otherwise impaired.

The movie Fargo's cabin scenes were filmed on the lake where we have our family lake place. I believe they filmed it winter 1995. They later sold the cabin on E-Bay and supposedly someone was going to move it to Wisconsin as a tourist stop.
