can anyone explain to me why people post for sale threads where they list one price for the sale price and an increased price for trade value? for example, say someone has an item for sale for $1,000, and it's worth about $1,000, why do they also post "trade value" being a few hundred more?? An item is not worth an extra $100 or two just because cash isn't involved. why is this common practice, and what's the point? because if I had a different item that was worth $1,000 that I wanted to trade to them there's no way on earth I did offer them an extra couple hundred bucks. Any words of wisdom or reasoning? I don't get it.
