Does anyone know what this adds to an advert? What are the none genuine reasons for sale?

It's always puzzled me that one.

Quite simple, that there's something wrong with it and they're shipping it on.

but I think they state it to imply the opposite i.e im not selling this car as its knackered, genuine reason for sale I have a new company car/cant afford both etc.

Well, the genuine reason is supposedly to ensure that you don't believe there is something wrong with it etc....

Of course, as with people who say "in all honesty" - if you have a genuine reason or are being honest, you don't need to tell people about it like that.....

if you didn't have a genuine reason for selling, than it wouldn't be for sale.

Genuine reason for sale can go in the same category as "selling my much loved" if its much loved why are you parting with it?

Quite possibly smile But it's always good to ask in person. You can see if they stumble or not.

Simply because no one really wants to advertise a car as "I have bought a much better one but my old car is still good enough for you"

The head gasket is genuinely about to let go and I genuinely don't want to pay for the repair. That's my reason.

Yes I know. The question was what are non genuine reasons for sale and that's the main one.

When im buying a car the very last thing that will enter my brain is to ask why you are selling it for its up to me as a buyer to check and find out if the car is buying is worth buying. Being in the motor trade for 6 year I can tell when something is bodged/something is covered up to hide etc to sell on if I miss it then find out later that's my fault.

I don't mention anything like that when selling my cars just state the specs of the car, work carried out and the bad points.

When people ask me the reason for selling a car and I change cars often is I found something better normally will have the new car with the old one that's normally kills that line straight there.
