    I\'m a bad seller

    When you have multiple people interested in something, what do you do? If the item is being sold for the reason of needing cash in a hurry ... and you have a couple people who want to buy but don't have the cash or means to buy right now... then one shows up with money in hand ready to pick up.

    I just sold something to the first person who showed and could get it out of my hair and put needed cash in my hand. And I didn't consult the other interested parties. Should I feel bad like I do?

    Did you promise to hold said item? If not don't worry. I've been on the other end a couple of times and just chalk it up to not bein meant to be.

    This is a first come (with the cash) first serve world. I will hold something for someone if I'm not in a big hurry too sell it, but if I'm really hurting for cash, then you know how it is.

    I figure the first one that can pay the price gets it.

    The only exception I can think of is if one of the first buyers gave you some earnest money, or deposit if you will.

    No deposits or anything. I said that we'd talk more about the deal later on, and by the time later on came, well, that was today and they are gone now.

    I just feel obligated still.

    Well, I also feel bad cause it's been a pain getting a hold of me lately. I've been in areas with bad reception every time he's tried calling me, and then as soon as I get back into town, that was it... gone. It may have been different had phone connection been possible.

    The only reason to feel bad is if you left money on the table. Which you always do /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    In my industry there is a saying:

    You always pay too much and sell for too little. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
