What is wrong with people in the marketplace?
I am always browsing in the market place section here on RCU. Sometimes you can find good deals.I have also sell items here. You know the saying: Someones trash is someone else treasure.But people want too much money for their planes. You see ads where the seller even details how much he spent building the plane, and then substract 10-15% for an used and abused plane.If I have that kind of money to spend in a plane for 10-15% Ill buy new.When you take a brand new car out of the dealer there is 30% depreciation right there. That is without scratches, what make people think that their planes dont depreciate.The times that I put an article in there I d research the price new and post it at 50%.They put their goodies there and of course they don't sell, any person interested in selling will drop the price, but noooooooo. They go ahead and put in there at the same price. Definition of insanity: Doing the same things and expecting different results!!!!!The only thing worth in there is people who like to build but not to fly, there are some ads New, never flown plane. Those are worth IMO more than 50% original values, anything else, for crying outloud, lower the price or keep it in your garage.Am I too cranky today?
