Fraud Prevention

security icon2Our security systems are being constantly upgraded for your protection, however, please note the following suggestions:

*Prices that seem "too good to be true" usually are.

*Refuse any deal in which a buyer, usually from overseas, is acting on behalf of  a "client" and requests you to send an amount ABOVE your selling price.

*When using and Escrow Service, only use trusted providers such as Escrow.com.  Type in the Escrow Provider's site URL DIRECTLY into your web browser and DO NOT TRUST LINKS SENT IN EMAIL INQUIRIES, they may lead to a spoof website.

Effective Selling - Part 3
forsale SOLD w/rvs
1. Attention - The first thing a buyer will see is your primary picture.  Ensure that this photos is clear and bright.  Next, use a Caption and that will grab the attention of a potential buyer, for example "Excellent Condition, "One Owner," or "Low Mileage."

2. Interest - Imagine who will be shopping for an RV like yours (demographic, age, etc).  Use phrases in your description and caption header that will accent the primary features that your buyer is looking for.

3. Desire - To further interest a potential buyer, use phrases or pictures that stimulate an emotional response.  For example - "Imagine...quality time with the grand kids" or "a great way to get away from the office."  These types of phrases incite a certain emotion in the buyer - very helpful in the selling process!

4. Action - Without an action on the part of your buyer, you will not sell the RV.  Give the reader a directive such as "contact us more information," "call us to set up a viewing."  This will prompt them to take that crucial next step in the purchase of your unit.
