Come now Colin.
City? country? How does that apply?
If I tell you I will wait for you till 2: PM to look at the tractor I will wait for you till 2. No ifs ands or buts.
I expect you to treat me the same way if I am buying.
If you ask me to wait till tomorrow I may or may not wait.
Even if you really want the tractor and tell me ten times you will buy it.
That means nothing unless I agree to wait for you. Your inability to come today does not obligate me to wait till you can. Most likely if you say you can not come today I will say the first person with the cash gets the tractor.
If I give you my word I will keep it. I expect you to do the same.
How do my City ethics not square with your Country ethics?

Jerry, I generally agree with this, and I think this does a better job explaining your idea than your earlier post did. Thanks!

Cash is king. I bought a car for my son from a CL ad a couple of weeks ago. I offered him less than the asking price and held out the cash. He had another guy coming in an hour but decided my cash in hand was a sure deal, the guy coming in an hour was not. Too many times the "other guy" never shows.

I bought a boat from CL a few years ago. I called on the add and was told that someone had already spoken for it and went to the bank for money. There were two other guys that wanted it too and the seller felt obligated to put them on the list ahead of me if his first buyer fell through. I gave him my number and asked him to call me if things didn't go as planned. Four days later my phone rang. The 3 guys ahead of me had all disappeared. Of course I used that knowledge to talk him down a bit. :D

I found an 860 for a very good price here locally about two months ago. I was the second caller on the tractor. The first caller had made an offer of $1600 and would be driving up later that day from about 3 hours away. I told the seller that I would give him his asking price and I could be there in 10 minutes with cash. He refused. That's a man who's word is good and I told him I really respected him for it.

For the sake of accuracy, it should have read Ford 960. Sorry...had a long day out at the farm yesterday.

The example you give is a good one and the seller did exactly as I would do. With one exception:
I will not haggle about money over the phone with a buyer.
I state my price in my ad. If they ask me on the phone if I will consider an offer I just tell them the price is as stated. If they want to come look at it they can make me an offer then but not on the phone.
