Problem is, he didn't raise the price because it failed to sell... he raised the price because people wanted to buy it. I've tried three times now to buy it from him. Thursday when he "relisted" it, I was ready to send him money, but he wanted me to wait a few days so he could get a shipping quote.
Ah well, I guess if a deal sounds too good to be true, it must be.
That's how my luck's run lately. Last week I responded to a craigslist ad for a m645 proTL outfit for $400. I drove 30 miles to meet the guy, and on arrival he told me someone else had offered him $500 and I'd have to match that price if I wanted it. Some people just have no sense of business ethics.
Sad but true. The thing is, on eBay a seller pays to sell and is far more motivated to do so. Rules may be broken but the history follows you.
Anyway, I was curious about prices and checked "Sold" on the bay, anywhere from $100 on up. Some dogs, some looked mint. Might be your best bet.
