PostSubject: Price of "second hand koi"   Mon Feb 07, 2011 10:59 am

I often get photos of koi with a request to assess their koi for resale purposes.

When my valuation is too high and the people don't get buyers, they are not happy with me.

On the other hand, if my valuation is much lower than what they feel is fair, they get upset with me.

I received these photos of four koi today and the seller mentioned an asking price of R 5000.00

Please help me out and give me a price to forward to the seller. Should there be any offers, please send me an E-mail. The fish are in the Western Cape area.





Any reason's for your valuation will be appreciated.

Hi Admin

Very poor quality koi except for the ogon.
Fish also look old.

dis nou `n moeilike takie wat jy daar het as iemand my koi moet verkoop sal ek moan as ek nie die regte prys kry nie want daar is `n sentimentele aspek betrokke ek dink dis hoekom die manne dit nie like as jy koi vir goedkoper gaan nie en jy is die eerste in die lyn van vuur as dit daarop neerkom

I agree with Anver. Other than the Ogon, the rest are not good. I wouldn't buy them.

I agree with Anver, these koi are poor qaulity and are not in good condition judging from the photo. I would not purchase any of these even at the lower hundred rand mark, however one might find someone that is new to koi and does not want show quality or even very good quality koi might be prepared to pay a few hundred rand for a large koi.

I agree as well. Not the kind of Koi I want to buy. Look at the little fat orange one in top picture. Would rather spend that money on one or two higher quality fish

You didn't mention size.....however as the previous lot mentioned I would not pay more than R200 a piece.

They are a bunch of mutts and mutts whether it be a dog or a fish has no value with regards to quality (often loads of value in the heart tho ) Laughing

Thanks for all the replies, I agree, the only one worth anything is the Ogon. Will refer the seller to the thread. Based on the poll, the value for all is approximately R 800.00.
