If it were me, that offer would just piss me off..I think 10% under is more reasonable.

I disagree - - - the seller has the right to refuse or ignore - - - if you're not prepared to "barter" then you should say so in the add - - - making a low offer is just part of "getting a good deal" :dont:

Isn't the asking price of $1550 about the price of new unless it has all the bells and whistles.
Kinda like trying to sell a current model year car you bought brand new. As soon as you drive that new car purchase off the lot youve lost 25 % or more .

Yeah CL is barter country. When I post something I choose a price point then add "FIRM" and stick with it.

I do a lot of buying and selling on cl. I have found new ones for 1449.00, but you would have to wait and pay taxes etc. The fact that he is trying to move and doesn't want to take it with him is another factor. 1000.00 is a lot of money these days to have laying around for "toys". He can either accept, or not. He touts the extras like a cover and extra shelves. I have a covered area to put it, and just enough room to place it AFTER I remove the extra shelves so none of that matters to me. He has responded, and thinking about it. If he doesn't agree by in the morning I'll move on.

No thermometer in lid. $1,000 IMO is about right used. Why is he selling?
