Question Goin' rate for a used Hustler?

Just curious what something like this might be worth....

'97 Hustler 38 Slingshot, twin 500's w/ about 200 original freshwater hours, B1's, Kohler generator (yes, a gene!), . Good shape, just hasn't been used much. No trailer. Asking price is $110K... is that about right? Don't see a ton of these here in the Midwest. Thanks.

The price sounds right. By the way you should take a look at my 99.

Perhaps OK for an ASKING price, but SELLING price will start with a "9".

Would attract much more attention is you ASKED $99K. Since you'll probably end up in that neighborhood anyway, why not?

why not? well, because if you start out by asking 99K instead of 110K, then you'll start getting offers that are that much lower and while the guy might be willing to sell at 100K, he may not be ready to do so at 90K.

And if you adopt a strategy of opening with a low asking and then sticking to your guns and not allowing what is considered a normal negotiation margin, this will put many people off. my experience is that there is nothing more effective in creating a bad vibe than a seller who is stubborn about the price...
