Ok. PSA for those selling Tickets. Years ago, I decided that until the redskins started winning for a long time, that it simply made more sense to buy tickets on the secondary market rather then from the Ticket office.
In all my life of doing this, I have NEVER seen suck low prices of tickets as I do right now. Even during the dark Norv years, tickets were more expensive. Just some info to think about when selling your tickets.
1) The law of Supply and demand are at work now. There are LOTS of tickets out there, and the demand is low. Before selling your tickets go to Ebay and Craigslist and do a quick look (Stub hub is not the best to look at since many of those ads were from weeks ago). If you are going to offer tickets outside the going rate on hope no one will notice, you are kidding yourself. You need to stay within the market range.
2) What you paid for them, is basically irrelevant at this point. That is called SUNK cost. We know the skins over charge for things like club seats. But that money is gone, and it really has very little baring on today's market.
3) Face value of course still plays a role, but really on the basis of how good the seats are.
4) Selling upper levels- It sucks. I know. The market is FLOODED with upper level seats going for as little as $30 (Sometimes less!). If you REALLY cant make the game, I would actually suggest giving the tickets to a friend, work buddy, boss, GF family, or something. The good will achieved might be more Value then the money you get.
for those that are buying -
1) Make offers. If the add says $200 a ticket, and you only want to offer $90 a ticket, do it. There is no such thing as a firm selling price these days
2) Pay quickly! People are selling tickets at big loses. Don't make them suffer in it waiting for the little money they did get. Pay ASAP after the offer was accepted.
Ok. That's my PSA.
