Selling my Casita

Hi,
I looking for some advice regarding selling my Casita, or maybe just point me in the right direction. My question is whatís the best way to handle payment. Bank or cashiers check, bank transfers or I believe there are companies that handle these types of transactions. I would appreciate you sharing any insights or experiences.
Thanks.
UPDATE; FOUND THE THREAD

I posted my Scamp for sale “cash only”. I closed the deal with the buyer handing the cash to the bank teller and then deposited it into my account. After the money part was done handed over clear title , keys, other stuff I had collected over the years of ownership. Best to be cash only!!!!!!

Verified cashiers check

I one sold an expensive motorcycle and told the buyer I needed a cashier's check. I also told the buyer that I needed to know in advance on what bank it would be drawn. When the buyer arrived, I called the bank and asked that they verify that they had issued the check. I had looked up the bank phone number in advance, so I knew I was actually calling the bank. It worked well for me. Cash at the bank is a great idea, however.

Whenever I sell something of a large value, I tell the buyer we will meet at the bank of their choice and I will watch the transaction between the buyer and teller. Accepting cash as your bank does not protect you from getting fake currency and the teller may not catch it if it is fake.

I sold my trailer by wire transfer. After my bank verified the deposit I signed over the title and they pulled away.

I would never carry large amounts of cash, especially with a long distance transaction, due to the possibility of civil asset forfeiture. If thereís a branch of my bank near the point of sale, then it could work. When selling to a cash buyer I would receive payment at my own bank and deposit before transferring ownership. .

Bank transfer can work, too, but you must verify receipt of funds before transferring ownership. Discuss the details with your banker before listing .

Cash or verified EFT only. Never any kind of check, not even a cashierís check. Always complete the final transaction at a secure location, preferably a bank.

Never transfer possession without the proper transfer of ownership documents at the same time. Be prepared to provide a bill of sale along with the title (depending on state). Notify your motor vehicle department of the sale (many states can be done online 24/7), so you donít incur liability for anything that happens after the transaction.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I did find a thread on the subject so Iím leaning towards a cash transaction at my Credit Union or a wire transfer ( which I need to do more research on)
Thanks again.

Bitcoin or wire transfer. I wouldn't ask for cash for something over $500. A lot of people have been robbed buying stuff on craigslist. Buyers and sellers.

Bitcoin can lose all its value in seconds, and I gather it just did.

Our last camper we sold the guy said he would bring cash and I didn't really think much of it. I had no idea he would bring mostly $20 dollar bills. It was hard to imagine just how big a pile over $10k in 20's is. And then I had to take it all to my bank to draw a cashiers check to buy the next camper because that was what the seller wanted. Many eyebrows were raised, including mine.

Thanks again.
When we listed our motorhome, I was unfamiliar with wire transfers. I made an appointment and spoke with a banker about the ins and outs of wire transfers. Very helpful. Might as well get some service in return for all that interest they're not paying you for holding your money!
