A reasonable selling price for a mixpre 10t I

Postby Ricardo Faria Costa Leite » Wed Apr 14, 2021 3:34 pm

Hi people,

Im selling my Mixpre 10T I that is now 3 years old, but still in good shape, I bought it new in May 2018 for 1800eur without VAT in Pinknoise,

Now I want to sell it, it works very well, its cosmetically fine,

I had some offers but I think they are too low, a guy offered 700eur...

What would you guys think it could be a fair price?

Is 700eur a fair price???

Thanks

Check what they're selling for on EBay... a fair price is what someone is prepared to pay.

It's obvious but true that it's only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it...

The location sound market is pretty depressed at the moment so demand is likely to be low. And it is a generation old with uncertain ongoing support...

But €700 feels cheekily low to me. I'd have thought around €1000 a much fairer price, maybe a tad higher if it comes with accessories.

You're far more likely to find comparable prices and get more sales interest in it if you go to www.BBlist.co.uk which specialises in this kind of product.... especially since we don't allow for-sale ads in these forums. :problem:

After a quick look on eBay, a commercial seller in the US recently sold off a load of 'brand new' MixPre10t for £760 each. So maybe your offer wasn't far off the mark for a 3-year old used one.

As Hugh says, these forums aren't for advertising - try the very good SOS Readers' Ads section for that. Or BBlist; they do take a fee but offer a very useful escrow service to remove much of the risk of a private sale and their core market is perfect for this.

Sounds like a reasonable deal.
