I don't know what those cabinets cost so can't reply on them. But the listed price for all the other tools seems pretty close to new prices. Granted they do appear to be almost new for usage. Not sure about age though.
it is a common human affliction to price things too high
especially on craigslist
but you have to start with the price high because i am pretty sure
that no one pays more than the asking price on craigslist
and i think most never pay even the asking price
from the looks of it some is selling everything so the best way to
go is offer them one price for the lot
can be hard to pass up offers like that when you just want to get rid
Around here, Craigslist isn't very popular - another similar web
site rules - Kijiji .. same idea though, I just posted 4 shop
machines 10" table saw, 10" RAS, 3-wheel 16" bandsaw and
a combo belt+disk sander all for $ 400. Old, well used stuff but
working. ~ 6 replies for sanding machine only ; 2 for table saw ;
2 for the lot.
I sold it all to a neighbour for $ 300. rather than dicker with a
stranger. C'est la vie.

I hear you. But for me, if you do not start with a realistic market price,
then you will not even get people calling to dicker. I'm not going to was

well you never know
high prices can often mean different things
sometimes it is due to just an unreasonable seller
sometimes due to a family that just lost a woodworker and has no clue
what to price it at so they start high to be safe

An analogy. House prices. If I was selling my house by myself, I would fi

If I was lazy, or an A Hole, and did not do this and decided to price my ho

to look at it.

Around here this past year you checked what the last house sold for
and added 20%, The prices were going CRAZY. Slowed down a bit right
now - but agents wouldn't even give you an evaluation this summer. -
Everything was going for above listed price - with numerous bids
chinese are using foreign real estate as investment
there are places where houses are bought and never lived in and
often times it is all cash
china has an excess of pretty much everything
steel and other building materials
have heard of new but uninhabited cities but sure if it is true
sometimes they do not want to take the time to do research and rely
on price discovery
which on craigslist means whatever someone will pay you and how bad
you want to be rid of something
have gone to craigslist seller and got great deals by just talking
the point is you never know the seller or their mindset so if it is
something you are interested in the worst that can happen is no deal
