    Someone else has called and we agreed for him to come round "in the next hour". That was an hour ago but no sign yet.

    Did you under price it?

    I've no idea really, as pricing second-hand cars depends on many factors. We priced it based on what others were selling similar cars for on Gumtree and AutoTrader. It is a basic model of Corsa so it has no aircon and some other things that the average model has (most of the ones on the websites were SRi or SX models, which have more features), and it has three advisories on the MOT that could become a problem in time, so these would push the price down. That said, it does have a 1.4 engine and low mileage, which would push it the other way. The price we chose was about midway between what two of the main valuation websites were telling us as well, so we felt that it was fair. In any event, we are getting what we want for it, and 300 more than chummy in London was offering. If it was underpriced then at least it got us a quick sale, so we are happy enough with that.
