When I've sold bikes in the past it's been for a few hundred $$ and it wasn't much hassle; someone would answer my Craigslist ad, come over to take a look at the bike, hand me some cash, and that was about it. But in the near future I'll be looking to sell my Specialized Vado for a price more like $2500, which is $1000+ less than what I paid for it, and I've been wondering how to go about it. Some of the details that have been on my mind include:
- Is there a good market for a (lightly used) name-brand e-bike in the $2000-3000 price range when many new, mostly off-brand new ones cost less than that?
- Where's the best place to advertise -- Craigslist that I'm familiar with or FB Marketplace that I'm not, or ???
- Should I insist on a cash-only sale? Are there other common, safe methods -- maybe electronic such as Paypal?
- Are there any other things to consider?
