So, I made a thread where I asked for help on placing a value on a lot I was looking at and I thought it went well.

 

 

 

This thread is for advice on lots where people may be having trouble placing a value. Anyone can post or give advice to help a fellow CAG.

I may have a little agenda...

 

This lady wants $120 for the lot, it includes a red DSlite (not pictured). She will sell the game individually for $12 each. I was thinking about just buying Heartgold and Pearl for $24 total.

So CAGs...How much should I pay for this lot? ;)

I'd only pay $70-80 for it, since I estimate I could get $130-$150(If I sold the games individually) on ebay.

I was going to offer $75, but I have a feeling she may stick to her guns. I thought maybe she would go $10 each if I picked up 5 games or something. Pokemon games tend to hold their value, right? Maybe she will make me a deal just on those...

If you want to just get the two main Pokemon games $12 is a steal, offer her lower on the other 3 between $8 or $10, what ever you feel more comfortable with. The other games really are just crap games other than the mario games.

Some guy on my local craigslist just posted an Xbox One for $320. I'm not really into the XBone but I'm really tempted to just buy the damn thing and flip on eBay lol.

I would be cautious about it since unless you can play it first. that is pretty damn cheap.

He's asking $140.  I know some of those carts are worth around 30ish.  Are any of these reproduced enough that I verify them?

You are barely making anything after fees and shipping.  The price for the system has dropped a lot.

OK, most of these I should be able to pick up between $2-$5 each.

 

I'm already buying Conker, Norrath PS2, Battlefront and the sealed SoulC2 PS2.

 

Are there any other gems I am missing? (btw there are 4 pics)

Destruction Derby Arenas is worth a few bucks last I checked. You won't get rich but I'd grab it for the price. Breakdown is a fantastic game and has sentimental value for me. I wrote the first published review for it. Not worth much though

I'll grab that one too thanks for the heads up! I already cherry picked from these, but she had to check pricing with her brother on the games I listed.

What about Simpson's Hit and Run Gamecube. Grab that one for a buck if you can.

I met up with her again tonight and I forgot the one bing suggested.  :wall:  I'll add that simpsons GC one to my list too. lol I think $2 is as low as she will go, but maybe she will take less since I bought from her 2 times already. :)

How much should I charge? 

 

I have this lot in the picture.  It's going to be garage sale leftovers.  I would like to sell this lot on Craigslist locally.  I would like to get an average of $4 an item for this lot.  Is this realistic on Craigslist?  I would think the buy point would be $2 an item as a lot.  I can sweeten the pot with better games or possibly a PS2 console.   How can I make the most money on this lot on Craigslist?  I don't need or want these anymore and they hold no value on Amazon.  No paypal suggestions or EBay.

Wondering if I should keep those boxed N64 games now.  Boxed N64 games are hard to find in that condition.  Even if they are only sport games.

Personally, I would.

I see games I want ;_;

Saw this at my local Meijer. It looks like it's been opened before. Not sure if it's a good deal.

It's okay for brand new. If your looking for a slim PS2 check craigslist and yard sales. You already know this Ferrari. My boxed PS2 slim was $25 at thrift. Not new but everything for $25. Without the box I grabbed one for $15 I think.

Check my post in this same thread. Need help prcing a lot. Sold the Weeds DVD' s though.

This has to be a joke: http://stlouis.craig...4479837672.html

 

It looks like Stadium Events for NES, by my NES knowledge is a bit lacking.  $50 for that lot would be crazy cheap, right?

Yes. 2000 would be crazy cheap. That is almost certainly fake though.

Ok, thanks.  Just making sure I'm not crazy.  I had to message the guy still, just for fun.  Of course no reply. . .

Well he knows about games if he knows the differences between geneses consoles (I don't really know the difference TBH). The fact that he said he would take guides stands out to me as an opportunity if you have a lot of penny guides. I assume he will want something in trade of about $200, but that is a wild guess.

Short and sweet, need advice on a potential buy

 

Landstalker (cart only) 8 bucks and some change. I rarely buy genesis games that aren't CIB but this seems like a hard game to find. I could just print out the artwork as I have extra cases.

 

Is it worth it?
