    Price check

    If you were selling a less then six month old symphony 65 what would you take as your lowest price offer? I have it listed on here at 100, but also on CL and have been getting offers but not sure how low I am willing to go for an almost new 199.99 dollar car seat.

    What would you do?

    On my CL, it doesn't matter if it is 6 months or 2 years old - if it is used, it is used. It is unusual to get any more than half the retail price of the item once it is used. The exception would be hard to find items, maybe like cloth diapers or special carriers.

    Re: Price check

    How much do you have it listed for on CL? Personally I usually put my price on there higher than I really want. That way they can offer less and still be where I want the price. I have had on occasion where they paid the asking price. So if I wanted $100 for the seat I'd out $150-125. If they offer anything over $100 I'll take it.

    I think $100 is very fair and if I had it extra to spend on a seat i'd be really interested in it. I'd wait, have you tried ebay?
