Timing is Everything

Buy low and sell high, hardly rocket science. However in the audio equipment arena, hardware is seasonal. The best time to buy is during the summer months when more people are spending time outside instead of staring at a computer. As a buyer and seller on eBay I can attest to the large difference in the perceived value of items as seasons change. I buy my "fixer" projects during the summer, restore them during the autumn months and sell them during the winter months when prices are higher. An added tip - bargains can be found at around tax time, during summer holidays as well as in the early hours of the morning.
