    I can honestly say that when I sell, buyers beat me up on price and it seems difficult to sell newer sterns and others for what I used to be able to sell them at. So when I'm buying, I'm definitely being more selective and looking for what I consider a good price instead of just jumping to get that title I want so bad (like a lot of people, I get excited and just want to get the pin once I have made the decision and have the money).

    And I don't know why this is, but when I'm selling, everyone wants to low ball me compared to what I'm seeing people sell games for elsewhere and/or on Pinside. When I'm buying, it seems like everyone wants more than market... it's frustrating. Not sure if it's just my area or what, but it makes me less inclined to buy/sell like I used to... I look at a pin that I am thinking about selling and hate the thought of the B.S. I'll go through trying to move it. Oh, and everyone wants free delivery (if I want to sell then I need to drive it 2 hours one way or something like that) or whatever.
