So someone bought it reasonable and is trying to flip it and double their money...Hope he gets burnt on the deal!

Just my (bad) attitude showing!

I don't mean to start something here but what is wrong with buying something and selling it for a profit. Don't think he is holding a gun to a prospective buyers head is he? I do this all the time and the buyer quite often still gets a good deal. What the heck there are times when that loader would bring more than that.

Oh that's right!! That's it. I'll buy it for twice the price, double the price again and say in the ad it's a "rare find" and "not many made". I'll be making money in no time!!!

I feel good with myself at a flipping percentage of 20% or so. Not 100%.

I am with you, make it when you can. It is the American way.

I'm not going to charge anyone an unreasonable price.

Think your going to find that there are a lot of things that we purchase that have a 100% mark up. As long as I can remember it's been "what the market will bear" that usually determines pricing on used things. The guy that sold it to this seller may have only payed $300 for those tractors at some point in time. 

If he is pricing it too high it won't sell. :(

    About the only thing I can say is if you are going to buy and sell (flip) this sort of stuff you should at least be willing to put a little elbow grease into it, get it running and working.  I think that would probably be worth $1500 if it were running and driving, if it belonged to any of us it would run and drive and we would all be asking $1500 for it.

I would bet the average retail mark up is way more than than 100%.  I would bet most of the clothing Walmart sells is 500% to 1000% mark up.  I don't think anyone would turn down doubling their money if they could.
