Hey guys, I am selling my car to a guy on Craigslist for $5,300. He has seen the car and we went for a test drive yesterday and he definitely wants to buy it.
The thing is that he doesn’t have enough money for it right now and wants to make installment payments on it (in cash).
Now before you accuse me of being an obvious idiot and getting ripped off, he agreed to let me keep the car until he makes the final payment!!!
The installments will be:
-$600 this weekend
-$1100 by December 15
-$3600 by January 20
Basically, he needs to wait till after the first of the year to get his tax returns before making the larger final payment.
All payments will be in cash and he agreed that if he misses a payment, I reserve the right to keep the car and the money he has paid up to this point. I don’t plan to be a hardass about the dates if he is a couple days late and keeps me in the loop, but the agreement will basically say that I reserve the right to do so if needed.
Obviously we will need a contract for this, and to get it notarized and all that. So my questions to you guys:
-Do you know of a good template I can use to get me started?
-Is there some sort of scam angle I am not seeing here?
