I think people just aren’t buying right now. I had an amp listed for three months. It was priced at slightly below market value for its make and model, and is in excellent condition.
Nah. None of them are selling. And that’s ok. People aren’t generally looking for 74lb, 100 watt, 2x12 Marshall combos right now. At least not around here. I didn’t list it on reverb or eBay, cause there’s no way I’m messing with shipping it. It would just be dumb. So it is what it is. Like I said, I don’t need to sell it, I just don’t need it anymore. As much as it hurts me to say so out loud. Doesn’t matter. I have room, and I don’t need the money. I’ll keep it for now. At some point, it will be worth it to someone.No offense intended, but if you were *truly* "slightly below market value" and on a site with proper traffic and allowed a decent marketing period, it would have sold.
I keep seeing the same guitars for sale locally on Craigslist. They simply aren't selling and some have been listed and relished for months and months. Many of them are really nice, quality guitars, USA made Fenders, Gibsons, etc. Most of them are in good to great condition.
I think the problem may be with what these individuals are asking for these very nice, but still used instruments.
Have you seen the increase in interest rates?Inflation is starting to affect all sales. Houses sold here as soon as the sign went up, usually for more money than they were listed for. A nice house about a block and a half from me has been for sale for going on three months now. It's nice inside and out, it would have been snapped up five months ago.
