Default Used Market "Airplanes"

Is it my imagination or have the asking price for used ARFs and RTFs increased by at lest 20%.

I've noticed that the asking prices are going up lately too. It looks like all the guys who just wanted their stuff gone during the bad economy have gotten out, so now it's sellers who are a little more attached.

When you consider how much the prices for new stuff have increased in the past few years it is not surprising that people are asking more for used stuff.

But:
Asking is one thing... Getting is another.

You can always submit an offer for what you think an item is worth. The seller can accept, decline, or ignore it.
