From personal experience, I was able to get a great deal on a car because the seller needed to move out of the state, relocating for work from Boston, Massachusetts to New York, New York and needed to do so quickly. At the time, I founded the car listing by accident and was not deliberately looking for sellers who were moving. But as we were building out iSeeCars.com, helping consumers to find “moving sale” car listings was a feature we thought would be useful to incorporate.
As you can see from the screenshot below, you can click on the “moving sale” checkbox (which is circled in red in the picture) to search for car listings whose owners may be moving out of state or country or relocating. Behind the scenes, what we do is to analyze the description of each listing and semantically pick out the keywords that best describe whether the seller is moving. When I last checked, you can find more than 1,000 “moving sale” car listings across all the locations we currently cover.
Let us know what you think of the feature. Enjoy and Happy 4th of July.
