Price has more to do with what someone is willing to spend than what
something is worth to you. I might have a rig that I want to get $100
for but it is a hot ticket item right now and someone is willing to pay
$200. I won't turn it down.

If I'm thinking about selling something, I'll watch to see what others
have asked and then plan accordingly. I'm not out to make any money on
anyone, just want a fair price. But fair price can be in the eyes of
the buyer or the seller. If I put it too high, no one will buy. If I
put it too low, I sell quickly but I don't get what it is worth. That's
why people love auctions. They can bid what they think they want to

(No, let's not discuss ebay and prices on this list. Not the place and
it's been done already.)
