Be advised that anyone who posts an offer must also post one advising those who may be interested that the offer has been withdrawn when it is no longer available. Makes no difference why, be it already sold, or a change of mind---let readers know it is no longer available, to avoid wasting the precious time of those who may have had an interest.

And if you make an offer, or just post an "I'm interested", make a note if you are no longer interested (or delete the posting, if possible) so that people know that it is still for sale, otherwise people will figure it's gone and that's not fair to the seller.

The best thing is to PM the person selling the item that you are interested in buying it. I don't usually post the ***SOLD*** marking until the interested party has agreed to buy it and is sending money

Which is right. The buyer can always back out until "the check's in the mail".
