    Default Am I stupid or just not an ass?

    So in preparation of selling these custom MK2s I'm working on, I started scouring the Internet to see what people are actually, not what people who aren't looking are saying people are paying.

    For "beat to shit" MK2s, it looks like $250/$300 per.

    For ones in good condition it seems people are actual willing to pay upwards of $350/$400 per.

    With the mods I did I was thinking oh selling them for $1200 for the pair.

    Is that too low or am I right in not furthering the absurd pricing for decks?

    personally, i wouldn't pay more that 500 for a pair, $600 if they are in MINT condition. If you can hustle them for 1200, props to you.

    I don't think you have to worry about that being too low, I really doubt you will get $1200 for the pair or much over $900 unless they have some really nice powder coat.

    There is that one dude on ebay who gets like 1400 a pair for the powder coated tables, but he also has a bunch of listings up at once and has all the feedback on his custom decks and they sit on sale for weeks.

    I was thinking I could probably get around $900 at the least.

    I want to recoup my investment and make what the market will bear without being a douche bag about it.

    1200 for MK2's is just bananas. Even $900 is quite high, but I'm not sure what you are doing to them and how long you are prepared to sit on em.

    $1200 may be a stretch. I would personally list the pair at $1200 and take any offer over $1000.

    I did manage to sell a pair in "OK" condition with no mods for $800, so getting over 1K should be do-able, you just may be sitting on them for quite a while.

    I'm prepared to sit on them.

    Like I said just trying to come up with a price which is a profit for me and not totally rape potential buyers.
