    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    When does this happen exactly?
    I’m about to buy a TZ for 4700 but wondering if I should wait.
    As a renter I don’t have to worry about foreclosure so I think I’m ready to pounce on deals.

    Nice. I say pass but send the info on to me. I've got someone that would pay substantially more for it. I'll give you $100 for your troubles.

    $4,700 is too much for a TZ wait for it to go lower.

    Well I spend my pinball time on Gottlieb add-a-balls. I can say with confidence there is nothing going down with those games. Entire games, certain parts have skyrocketed.
    THings will get better if you just buy the magazine!

    Where were you when I could hardly give those away? Tough sell. Perhaps there aren't enough old men around my town that want to relive that past.

    Where’s the Indys for less then $8k?

    With some of the prices selling today, IJ, TZ and other wide bodies seem like a bargain at 8k. Geez.

    I sold two games yesterday within 2 hours of posting. One sold here one sold on Facebook. Both at or extremely close to my asking price. If you price them fair they are moving fast. If you get greedy and want absolute top dollar for everything the market will feel like it’s slowing down. If you are truly trying to sell at this moment, be keenly aware of the market pricing and price accordingly it’s that simple. Lots of greed evident in the prices these days and most of that is tied to the need as others have said, to raise as much cash as possible to keep up with the ever increasing cost of new machines when you simply don’t have other cash on hand to inject into the next big purchase.

    Holding out for cash right now is hard. Welcoming trad +/- cash yields instant results. 18 offers in a day on my MMr. I live in pinball land but still.

    Prices fluctuate with the owners urgency or motivation to sell.

    Quoted from Sluggo39:

    We all have to keep in mind that it's basically the same 2000 folks regularly buying and selling these high end pins.

    So when a shiny new GnR or whatever hits the market it shakes loose a lot of existing games out of collections to make room/$. All these games flooding the market at once tends to reduce prices, temporarily. Other times when there is no "gotta-have-it" new game hitting the market collections tighten up and prices increase.

    Right now between GnR and AIQ lots of new games are inbound forcing older games to the market. It will pass.

    I agree, the new hot titles are the motivation!
