Quoted from wayout440:
You don't see them because they actually sold. I sold my Taxi for $1700 in about a week's time. If I priced it like some have suggested I'd probably still be waiting. Fairly priced sells in some reasonable time, if your intent is to sell the game. Overpriced, and it will sit. So, why is yours not sold yet?
You do not understand supply vs demand if you look an empty marketplace of any product and think a perfect price was responsible for everything selling fast. If you sell your house in 1 day while it is on the market, you likely sold it too low. The concept that you are estimating that $1700 was the perfect price of a Taxi game based on one data from one sale... sorry that is not how value is determined. Maybe it was only worth $1700.. that could have been the perfect price, but perhaps you could have put $2200 on it and sold it for $1900. It is difficult to estimate.
However, if you are the only one in the marketplace with one for sale, you have a greater chance of selling it. Though you will hear the exact same bunch of people on this site bitching about your asking price.
It does not matter, crybabies can (and will) bitch about anything they want to if you are selling your car or whatever and they don't like your asking price. It would be nice if I had the spare time that some of the haters on this thread do. I do not. I might go a week without checking this site and when I do I am looking at my 3 favorite threads. I missed a nice ST Data East playfield for $200ish, because I am not married to this site. People come and go. Those were the people that would have paid $1900 or $2k for your Taxi. I will guarantee several people have looked at your $1700 listing and said "Ah shit... I missed that one".
If you were in a rush to sell your Taxi... selling it low was probably your better option. I am not hurting to sell the Baywatch, I am in no rush.
...And I am still waiting to see all of the Better-than-mine Baywatch Pinball machines at the pinside estimated price of $2500... Where are they???? Time to list them!
