Yesterday afternoon I was excited to hear that Harry had gotten a call from people interested in our car. We made plans for them to come over to the house last night after we got home from work. Turned out to be just a nibble and not a bite though. They looked at the car, and took it for a test drive. Seemed to like it. But I guess the price was a sticking point. We have it priced at $12.5. Before we priced it, I checked out NADA and Kelley Blue Book. It has a couple little dings so we priced it a little under what those two sites gave for the value. Plus I have a year and a half/40k miles of my extended warranty that can be transferred to the new owner. But these people had checked the value on Edmunds, and said the value was less than what we had it priced for. They said they would “keep it in mind.” OK, I won’t hold my breath.
So, after they left, I pulled up Edmunds.com and checked it there. Edmunds gives the value as a little more than 2k less than the other two sites. That makes no sense to me. Shouldn’t they all be in the same ballpark? While I was looking, I noticed that Edmunds has a search engine feature where you can look for cars for sale in the area. So I did a search of 2006 Hondas around here, and said I was looking to pay $8k to $15k. It pulled up 6 of them. The lowest was $11980, and the highest was $14900. So we seem to be right where we should be. I still don’t get that value though.
Other than that, yesterday was a normal and busy day at work. We are down one desk person due to a promotion, so let’s just say the days have been going by fast!
I have pictures from our get together with Phyllis and Len on Sunday, but I haven’t uploaded them to the computer yet. I will try to get to that tomorrow.
Have a great day everyone!
