The general lack of knowledge of what to charge for old / used parts astounds me. People post items for MORE than what they are if you buy them from amazon / newegg, and then when you call them out / send them a link, they simply say "I'm hoping to sell to someone who doesn't know, and pay some bills."
Or people who post used items and ask for what you can pay amazon for brand new, like the think their used dirty / dusty items should be worth new parts.
General rule I use when selling parts, if it's clean, and runs perfectly, I take 60% of what you can buy new, and post at that price. Hopefully it sells, but willing to accept 50% of what it would take to rebuild using parts from today's price.
But I can't stand people who post them items on facebook / craigslist / offerup and expect to sell for more than the items are worth.
