3 days ago I posted my grand laredo for sell at $1500.00. I received a buyer to pay me cash $1250.00 tonight. I love this car and truly didnt even want to sell it but my legal/ financial situation leads me no choice. The jeep is a 4x2, 6inline. It has 258,000 mostly highway miles. The engine is still good. However it now requires a new radiator, battery and a front bumper. There is a transmission part that is creating leakage and overheating. Other than that the jeep is in good operation. The body still truly looks new. There are no dents or rust anywhere except in front corner of hood (chipped paint). The interior is still in good shape. All leather seating. There is though two small holes in passenger seat. All navigational components, locks, sunroof, heating/ac, cd/radio, are fully operable. The brakes and tires remain in good shape. 50-75% tread life. Passed emissions. I did recieve a kbb value on my jeep, 2150.00. But I really don't even know if that is correct. It gave me a value on a 4x4, and when I went to edit to a 4x2 on the site it still returned with the same value of $2150. So I dont know if that is correct or not, which is to why I priced it low. I just want to be fair to the buyer but at the same time not shortchange myself. The 1250.00 still wouldnt help me in me legal matters but I just want to know anyways. Please help me with the best and fair selling value of my jeep.

thank you,

You could try raising asking price to get higher offer? Usually the way it works. You can always go down. Put 1950 and see what happens? And actually if you have time to wait, you may sell it at your asking price. Especially if you have more than 1 person interested at same time.
