    Default Where is a good pricing website for used machines???

    I have a 1996 Polaris 500 EFI with 1700 hundred "women" miles on it. It has reverse and is in mint condition. I have been searching the web but can't find a site that might tell me the value of it. Is it worth the time to talk to a dealer? Anyone have a site that I'm too stupid to find? Figured this would be the best place to ask!!!!As I am maybe thinking of selling it, cause I don't ride it enough.

    If you compare the prices NADA lists to those listed on craigslist, you will commonly see the average NADA retail is less than the asking prices. I don't think NADA takes location into consideration, although I'm unsure if it recognizes IP address location and then compensates for that. Regardless, do a search on all the classified sites and see where yours falls in quality compared to their asking price. Then adjust the price based on how much interest you gather / need.

    I peruse craigslist every day sometimes two or three times a day. It's a hobby or addiction Anyway, without even looking at NADA or Kelly Blue book I'd say that if you were somewhere around $1,800 to $2K you'd be in the ball park and then OBO from there. I just bought a 1995 Indy Trail Deluxe 2700 miles, two-up with electric start, reverse, rack listed for $1,600 got it for $1,400. Yours has less miles, is EFI and mint so I think $2k would be a good starting point. And I will agree with the other posters, use NADA if you are financing because that is the price that the banks will loan up to, but NADA is usally short a few hundred bucks or even thousands compared to what you see posted and moving on craigslist.
