Re-selling your gear

Now I'm not having a go at you for asking the price that you people are asking for your AEG', GBB' and sniper rifles but... Most of us upgrade our gear. We do it because we love it, we want to tweek it here and there to make it our own and to also make it perform better. Now all of the MODs cost money. So now we have this super cool kit but need to sell it after a while either to get new stuff or just to make ends meet.

With the credit crunch the way that it is going and times are only getting harder I would advertise my upgraded kit for a reduced maybe slightly more than new but not 50% more price so that my kit would sell.

I mean really once you drive the car off the lot it's not new anymore and depreciates daily. I realize we need to recoup some of the costs but in these times where cash is tight shouldn't some allowances be made?

Just a thought.

I always have sellers remorse when I let something go.

Really, it's supply and demand, and also some gotta-have-it value. If you post your gear with a retarded price, people won't buy it.

Don't like the price? Don't buy it.

you are forgetting the rare value, I believe that if it is rare enough and unique enough there would be buyer somewhere

After all the work i put into making mine perfect for me... I would say i could sell it for $200. payed a total of $110 for everything. But if i was buying my gear from somebody else in the shape it's in right now (for my body size/type) I would pay $200 and up. That is probably what is going through so many peoples heads when they are pricing their gear, though their gear is only really worth so much if the person buying it is their clone.
