When you look at a lot of names that sell to an end user and resell the second time at an expired auction. You see just how perfect the timing can be to find that end user and otherwise what it would go for at wholesale.
Certain factors like age and trends come into play. It’s something newer investors have to take account. Sometimes I see someone saying that an outdated technology still has major value because they saw a sale in 2009 when the tech was relevant.
Certain names have better burn down value than others, where they still go for 4 figures vs just $100.
