    For Sale: Polaris 9300 (also seeking fb on price, etc.)

    I have a relative that is asking questions on how is the best way to sell this item. Right now they have it posted on craigslist but no one has responded.
    http://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/hsh/3454702408.html

    Any advice on how their price is, anything they can add to the description, or a better place to advertise than CL? (I only know the small above ground pools, so this is out of my league.)

    Thanks for any advice!

    $700 is a bit high for a cleaner that has been used for a year. I would recommend selling it for about half retail ($450) if they want to sell it quickly. You can probably get more through an eBay auction but then you have to pay eBay their cut as well.

    Do you think they would have any better luck if they just held onto it over the winter and then relisted it in the Spring?

    They might have better luck in the spring. Just to give you an idea on pricing. When I've sold a cleaner on CL I start at 60% of retail and usually end up selling it for 40-50% of retail. And this is for cleaners that have only been used for a few weeks to a month. A cleaner that was used for an entire season most likely is not going to sell for over 50% of retail. I could be wrong, just going based on my experience in the Sacramento, CA CL market. It may be different where you are.

    Thanks. I just found two completed listings on ebay and sent the links to them. One was used for 3 months and sold for $550. The other was said to have been used only twice and sold for $625. I think that will give them an idea of what they might could get on ebay, but also confirm what you said, that the price was a bit high, especially for CL.

    Yeah eBay will net them a better price but then there are auction and listing fees so either way it's going to be pretty close to the same.
