Quoted from AFM95:
I'm curious to what everyone's thoughts are about what will happen with the pricing in the secondary market?
DILE for example, was $9,000 NIB (with no sales tax). The rough estimate for resale currently is $8,000 give or take. If I bought DILE today NIB, it's going to be $9,675 (with a 7.5% sales tax).
Does the NIB buyer eat the extra $675? Will a few hundred extra dollars be built into the resale price?
It will be interesting to see how the secondary market evolves moving forward.
The new taxes will absolutely increase the value/price of private party pin sales on the secondary market.
No different to the manufacturer increasing the prices of NIB pins which, in turn, reflects the prices of used pins, going forward. A price increase is a price increase. It doesn't matter the source of the increase.
Of course, this will not apply to those who live in or near a state with no sales tax.
