Herrman Posted June 1, 2021 Share Posted June 1, 2021 Hi, Could anyone please offer advice on how to determine a fair price for second-hand equipment? Some months ago I place a for sale ad on SGL for a range of items, but managed to sell only one of them. I was surprised by the lack of interest (I had thought someone would have been tempted by the Atik EFW2), and can only assume the asking prices were too high. I’d determined my prices by first looking at eBay and Astro Buy & Sell, and then setting my prices slightly below the asking prices on these sites. I’m now looking to sell some more equipment, and would hope to achieve greater success this time around. So how best to determine fair asking prices? With car and houses, prices are set by ‘market forces’, but I’m not sure what forces control the trade of second-hand astro gear. I could invite offers, but then without knowing what to expect, I wouldn’t know if the sum offered was reasonable. I’m not looking to make a killing; my idea to a good trade is when both parties come away content. I’d be very interested to hear your thoughts on this. Best, Herrman Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
