You've seen the ads on TV for "instant cash on your title," and the like. But sometimes, financial hardships are even more severe--and some sellers need a better way to unload their big-ticket debts in a hurry, to stay a step ahead of the bank and the repo man. might be the place to do just that. The new Web site is capitalizing on the downturn in the economy by, it says, giving a last, best hope to people looking to unload stuff. The idea here is to shorten the buying/selling period on big-ticket assets from months to weeks by providing a sizable discount. People who are looking to quickly sell their houses, cars, boats, etc., are promptly matched with cash-in-hand customers.

Only people who are in search of quick sales are allowed to advertise here, unlike many other classified ad sites where time is not a factor, the operators claim. The items are tagged at a discounted price, helping them move quickly, president Jerod Willey says.

"A growing number of individuals are 60 days late or more on their car payments and home foreclosures are on the rise," Willey says in a press release. "When the bills are piling up, sellers need the most direct route to cash."

This route might be ideal for people who have bills piling up and need to move swiftly to avoid foreclosure and repossession. On the screen--as squeamish as the idea makes might be the tool that helps keep people out of the worst kinds of financial trouble.

We can't give an endorsement, since there's no track record on the site. You may need to check it out, though -- just keep in mind, it's new and unproven, and use at your own risk.
