    Default What's a fair price on used N5?

    Used, but showing very little signs of wear. Always in a case w/screen protector.

    A very wide, estimated range, I'm guessing, would be $250-$350. Can someone help narrow this down?

    This would be the U.S. variant. Thanks.

    I just happen to be selling my N5 on Craigslist right now. It is in absolute pristine 100% perfect condition, and I'm asking $280 firm. You could take a magnifying glass to it and not find a single flaw. Actually, my fingers have never even touched the back of it. (maybe I should ask for more?)

    I've seen others with a slightly broken screen and dented corner asking $250. (he's crazy) I've seen some that were near perfect asking $320-340. It just depends. I think yours sounds along the lines of $250-260. But you might get more, there's always someone out there willing to pay. I would ask $280 and take $270. But that's just my opinion.

    FWIW, can I ask where you're located?

    I'm in the SF Bay Area, not sure if that matters.

    A brand new 32G N5 is $400, why would you even consider paying $350 for a used one even if it's in perfect condition? You should never pay more than 50% of the new price for a used phone.

    I bit more with tax but yes do not overpay. swappa is a good place to look. You can find really good deals.

    I would definitely consult Swappa for a good idea on a selling price. Especially since that is where your competition lies.

    Since finding Swappa, I've stopped selling on Craigslist. I notice that people on Craigslist expect very low prices and even after paypal fees and shipping - I still make more on Swappa.

    I just sold for $309 on Craigslist. I actually had a buyer at $329, but that fell through.

    Im in the LA area and got 2 from craigslist 32gig white 265$ and 32gig black one 260$ both with box and everything. Then i resold them for 320 each. Depends how bad you need the money, if you can wait and be patient you'll get what your asking for as long as is reasonable.
