This is a question we get asked a lot. DesperateSeller is not a website that advertises cars from people who are necessarily "desperate" to sell their car. However, the origins of the website does adhere to this notion. DesperateSeller was formed back in 1999. Back then it was primarily a website that was aimed at people who had had little luck in selling their car using the conventional forms of car advertising such as a local paper or car classifieds magazine. These were people that were "desperate" to sell their car, hence the name "desperateseller". Times have changed since then and we have now become one of the top websites to visit for used cars. What makes us different to other car classifeds websites is that we make it easier for our users to find bargains on cars they are looking to buy. Advertise and sell your car fast with Desperate Seller.
