The 'Whats it worth?' thread.....
Is there such a thing?
Im generally at a loss to determine the sale price of things. Whilst I'm always wanting to maximise returns, I also consider issues like:
1. Offering goods at a fair and reasonable price
2. giving a discount to mates/inmates
3. once I've made the decision to sell, I want it gone. Like yesterday. I hate endless tyrekickers and time wasters. I'll cop a financial hit to clear some space in the shed, often to my detriment.
4. Whats it going to be worth to replace/upgrade, and whats the potential price/out of pocket differential.
5. the relative rarity of the item,
6. the typical ease of sale, ie is it in demand and therefore should move quickly?
So take a set of Andys expedition Pannier bags I'm currently looking at selling to an inmate. (sorry, you know who you are :) I wonder if the inmates would work this thread in your favour if they knew ha ha)
New are $385 as per Andys site (they are the 4 pocket variants)
They have had a small repair done to the back of one (by Andy), but are otherwise in great condition with the typical dust stains on them. They were purchased new by me in May 2012.
Should I sell them for:
-75% of purchase price, say $280
-60% of purchase price, say $230
-50% of purchase price, say $190
Bear in mind I already have a figure in my head.... sort of. Ive asked the inmate to throw a figure at me.
Do you guys have some sort of standard formula?
Or should this thread become a place where sellers can ask inmates to help in determining prices by vote?

50% of new price +/- 10% depending on condition, desirability and how quick you want to move it.

Work it out from tha ato depreciation schedule ya slacker
So a dirty canvas sack that's been written off due to depreciation / damage, then you've managed to claim an extra repair into the bargain
Probably time you started looking at how much you owe him for toxic waste disposal

calculate the number of friends you have...............add 1 and multiply that by the price a can of beer........... final figure reached is the cost of the beer you have to share with your friends after the sale goes through
