Hey guys this is my first post so i`m looking for some good critical feedback. About a year ago i bought an X box 360 off craigslist for $200 from someone in town. We met at a public location (wal mart or something) and the product worked great. After about a month of playing i got bored and decided to try and sell it for the original $200 when i heard advice from a freind that i could get at least 350 for it. I put it back up on craigslist for 350 and sure enough received 3-4 responses and sold it that same day. 150 dollars for 10 minutes of work.
Football season came around at my University (Big SEC school) and i
noticed people around campus selling tickets for face value and others
reselling the same tickets for about 150 dollars the week of the game,
netting them 140 per transaction. Now while this is not illegal by the
state it is against school policy, which is why i never got involved,
but i saw potential in ticket sales of other things where there were no
restrictions. (concerts, pro sporting events etc).
So i am just wondering if anyone on this forum has experimented with
buying and selling items on craigslist or other sites? As long as the
buyer and sellers are both happy with the deals i don`t see a problem
with ripping anyone off. Could this be pulled off successfully as a
Keep in mind there are many markets for this such as cars, electronics,
tickets and textbooks. (I have freinds going to the bookstore dropping
1K per year when they could be getting everything for 300)
Any advice/feedback criticism is much appreciated
