I listed my elliptical for sale last week, but not a single nibble. Looking at craigslist they either seem super cheap or expensive. This one was only used for a month and I bought it on sale for $600 down from $999. I listed it at the community center for $400.

I really need the money back on it, but should I just be patient and wait, or just suck it up and try to get rid of it for $200? Anyone tried selling something like this before?

I sold my old one on Craigslist a few months ago. Mine was older and we priced it on the lower-mid range of the prices we saw. We had several people ask about it and offer trades...took a few weeks to find an actual buyer.

Did you include a good picture? Close ups of the control panel/screen if there is one? Detailed descriptions are easy to find on manufacturer websites. If you can find it on a store website showing the orginal cost that would help illustrate the value too.

The more info/pics you include the better your chances. Good luck!

I want to buy a used elliptical. Any thoughts on the brands to look at? Where to get started?

I'd post again in a week or so, try posting on an earlier weekday when the weather is really gross. Quite a bit of psychology goes into craigslist postings. When I was trying to sell my bike the first time I posted it I think it was an icky week and... a Saturday. The next week I posted it on a beautiful Monday when everyone was at work dreaming about being able to ride bikes to the beach so I got like 7 offers and was able to sell it high. Good luck!
