I'm moving from Norfolk and really need to sell everything. The only real big item left is my queen bed. I listed it on craigslist along with a bunch of other things as a complete package. The bed is very nice (expensive and not old) so I don't want to sell it at a fraction of the price. I'm asking $1,600 for all the items and I'm thinking this price is too much for Norfolk. I'm hoping there's a family or couple out there who needs all this stuff.
Can you guys help me out here and tell me what you think? If I can sell the bed, I think I can get rid of the other pieces of furniture pretty easily, but I think listing the bed alone will not get me a good price. It's a premium quality bed, but there are so many cheaper (of poorer quality) beds on Craigslist. Any suggestions on how to sell all this stuff in Norfolk before I move?? Thanks guys!

here's the listing: Complete bedroom + much more!

I am not an expert on selling household goods, but I'll give you my perspective.

Unless you have something special & unique (like some fairly rare collectible item or a popular sought after brand of something), many buyers on Craigslist are looking for bargains, especially in things like household goods. I think you are right that $1,600 is too much. I don't know where the tipping point is that will get you some inquiries. I would suggest cutting it down by a considerable amount.

Good luck on selling your stuff.

Nomad, I'm in the same boat! I want to sell all of my bedroom furniture (except the bed) but Craigslist is just sooo sketchy...I have no desire to have random strangers traipsing in my house. I think I may just donate mine and take the tax deduction :/
