Default General question about classifieds

when you see a classified ad with no price listed and it apparently has a price, do you even consider looking at the ad?

Just curious, when I do not see a price listed I just assume if I were to call I would get the traditional circle jerk reaction you get from a car dealer and I keep on looking for something else. At least new car dealers list the price.....

Just curious if anyone gets the same reaction....

No price, I move right on to the next one.
Goes for both individuals and advertisers.

This ain't lumber that changes every day with the market.

I think that a lot of people feel that way Dean.

One of the fundamental principles of marketing is that people usually don't buy an unpriced item and they usually don't ask.

Regardless of interest or financial capacity.

No price, then I will pass on the item.... The days of "call me, price too low to print" are long gone. I was just thinking the same thing looking through the classifieds today.

Exactly, if you don't put a price why bother advertising.

No price, no call. It is stupid to advertise a product with out some kind of price.
