Re: Anyone else get discouraged selling on Craigslist because of all the flakes and low-ballers?
I've bought and sold many things on CL. When selling, I usually ask about 20% more than what I really want. Sometimes they want to deal, sometimes I end up with more $$ than I anticipated.
I don't have a problem meeting in public or my place. I have a few items for "self-defense" around the house. Public places don't bother me. If I go to someone's house, I at least have a blade or something else in case the deal goes South. Only met at someone else's house twice. One time we did the deal on his front porch. The other time he showed me his studio and we bullshitted for over an hour.
