What are the Biggest Fibs that Sellers Tell?

How about:

  • It weighs less than 1000 pounds.
  • It doesn't leak
  • I don't know if the ____ works, I've never used it.
  • The tires are perfect - lots of tread (but 15 years old...shhhh)
  • It has only been sitting in that field for a year or so

"It's worth a lot more than I'm asking!"

And of course:

"I've got 5/10/15 people showing up here in five minutes with cash in their sweaty little hands, so make up your mind!!!!!!!!"

I bought it from the original owner.

They were a retired elderly couple who only used it few times before putting in the garage.

That one soft spot in the floor isn't really that large... it won't be a problem!
