Is it a mistake to list an item for the price you actually want? It's starting to feel like buying/selling a used car around here. If I want something from the classifieds and the price is what I'm willing to pay I PM the seller saying "I'll take it", otherwise I move on. If I decide it's been too long on an item I want to sell, I post a lower price on the thread. I got a bass listed for $1200 here. The exact same bass sold here for $1200. I have about 5 offers for $1000. Do I need to list for $1300, get the $1100 offer, say $1200 to meet in the middle? What am I missing here?
