My brother once said to me with respect to car sales, make it pristine and they will never have a problem giving you your price. This has proven true over the years as I have sold cars for my clients. Today, same scenario, car needs some work, buyer not happy. We agree to get the work done, car now sold. I can understand, laying out a few grand for a car or for anything, you want it to work right. Nothing worse than having to sink more money into it right away.
