this weekend I turned down what was in essence the same offer as I had given my word to holding the car...even though I didn't have a deposit. The local guy hinted he'd pay more but if I didn't sell it to him at that moment and if I called him later, he'd be lower. I told the original commited buyer he'd better send a deposit due to the pressure to sell, which he did, $500.
Now the original buyer had walked, I called buyer # two and listen to him laugh....he's suppose to call me back shortly. I anticipate his offer will be a lowball. My new car is on a tranport truck to now due to arrive Friday or Sat.
Then don't sell it to him Carl, your price is perfect and the car will sell. Like I just emailed you it was a three way deal this whole time and the third guy ruined it which is beyond our control. Your $500 richer as I didn't even mention the deposit on the phone. I definitely did everything in my power to make this happen and the guys on the board who know me so far know that I do my best to be a good buyer/seller. So if you want to blame someone blame the third guy, I had the transport reserved and credit card on file. I'm just as angry and I'm embarrassed this happened but the reality is there is nothing I can do since he backed out.

Sorry to hear it didn't work out. Good to hear that blown kept his word and left a deposit as well as notified you that he had to back out. Shit happens, but at least he manned up and was straight up with you.
