DH and I are going to have a yard sale soon and want to sell our bed. its almost brand new, only 3 months old. I got it while DH was on deployment when I moved into our house. I told him I wanted a king size but he said we already have the frame and head board for a queen and no matter how much I talked with him about it he refused to let me get a king so I got the queen. Well we went on vacation and slept on a king bed and he loved it. so now he wants a king, Also he said I picked out a bed thats too soft. So how much would you pay for a 3 month old queen size bed with frame and head board that has always had a matress protector on it and will be steamed clean (by stainly steamer)  before we sell it? We paid $650 for the bed.

you could see what people are selling their almost-new used mattresses for in your area.  i've never bought or sold a used mattress, so i don't know much about the pricing.

If you start it a little high you can always negotiate to a lower price. So I would start around 450 or 475. Because it is still used and ppl at yard sales are expecting bargains.

 When we moved across country we had just bought a new bed...so I sold it on CL...I paid 3000...king bed, wooden headboard footboard, framed...and a  300$ comforter set for 1100$ all together...I would have asked more but DD spilled a drink and stained the mattress...but that's what I did..

If it's still really clean and everything I would ask 65% of what you payed but be willing to go as low as 35%

thanks. we were just going to trade my dad but he doesn't like our bed. (its just him and the dog so no reason to have a big king size bed, right? lol)

Then that is perfect. That is why you always wanna price it for about 50 OVER what your bottom line is. That way there is negotiating room

oh yes, always ask for more then you want because you know someone is going to want it but talk you down. my dad did that a lot, he would find something and talk the person down to what he could.
