Default Why is no one intrested on purchasing my car ?

https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...terior-la.html

Ive had another post up for about two months and I havenít gotten a single offer. I just made a new one thinking MAYBE my other post got blocked or something.
Is it the price ? Is it the car? I donít understand.
The price seems like a pretty good deal especially comparing to other cars exactly like mine for sale.
Iíve seen other cars get way more attention where I honestly havenít gotten a single offer, and Iím not going to lie, mines a bit better looking than theirs.
Any tips ?

For one thing, you haven't listed a price as per the forum rules.

Good looking car .. all the CF might be polarizing...IMO... price gets a discussion going for sure ... think it would look cleaner w/o red stripe... just my 2 cents

it is a nice car.I looked at in December before I purchased another.I wanted something closer on East coast plus M7 and less miles.

I would try posting at auto trader and car guru sales. Also have you tried Carmax for a quick sale. They should give you 37 to to 38 if you have hud and nav.

Check out this comparable

Nor what's the interior option, 1, 2 or 3LT?
By the wheels, it appears to be a Z51 but can't say for sure
Seems to have the grill changed out to Z06/GS but should mention it

In general, you need to MARKET & SELL it, not simply list it

The guys are right. Besides, you just posted at 1:18pm Central. Things don't happen immediately. And yes, you need to post a price for your C7.

Post specifics and details about the car too.

The lowballers on this forum want the car for 23,000 not 43,000.
If you were at 35K, they would be constantly pitching idiot offers your way every hour.
Ask me how I know.

Nice car. As mentioned, price... also mileage. Perhaps the stripe will distract some attention... Posting the sticker might help, and listing any mods as applicable.

Edit: I see that you just added the price...

Thanks for all the fast replies. I forgot to post the price on the new one. I had it up for 2 months for 44k just dropped to 43k
and Iím not trying to be rude or anything but the title says it all no?
Also Iím pretty sure who ever is going to buy the car should know the difference between the packages so I didnít want to bother and list what the 2lt has. I thought it was pretty self explanatory and again donít get me wrong Iím not trying to come out rude or anything like that

You can edit your first post in the thread...add all the information there. Put the price prominently in the first posting too.

Nice car and not a bad price. Don't forget the time of year still isn't good for selling. Also the way the pics were taken needs help. Half in the sun half in the shade. Maybe have someone help you take better pics. The angles just aren't right. Lets face it, like Ken said, you gotta market it. And good pics are most of the marketing. Not everyone likes the big stripe down the middle too.

Well, if we missed it, how many potential buyers did too?

You need to be verbose in your listing.

As I said, SELL it - tell everyone all about it, any extras you added, how it runs, etc

You have a LOT of competition. Make your car more desirable than the next guy's. Talk it up, get people interested enough to ask about it

If it's not stock, you're losing a big segment of the pool. Mods, even factory mods like a stripe for example, loses market interest. I'd never buy a non-stock used Corvette.
