Default thinking about buying

My cousin is trying to sell me his old Rome set-up and im not sure whether the price he is asking for it is fair or not.

The Board is an '06 Rome Artifact used for one season...it has 2 little lam chips on top and some minor cuts on the bottom.

The bindings are '06 Rome 390's also used for one season...have minor paint chips but other than that look fine.

What im asking you is what you guys would pay for that...he is asking $275...Im just not sure.

does the board fit you? is the board what you are looking for as far as riding style? have you used the board? that's what i would worry more than the price.

Other than that, I would offer $230 and settle at 250.

The 390's are some of the best bindings you can get in my opinion. They are good in the park and good on the mountain. I don't know about the board, but if it's in bad shape, I'd offer him a bill for the bindings at least.

what's the opinion on the artifact? i'm going to be volunteering and hopefully buying at: Hoofer Ski and Snowboard Club - Resale this weekend. So there's probably going to be a shitton of options. Expect to hear from me all day when I'm there fretting over what to buy lol.

I'd pay $200 at most for a 3 year old Artifact with 3 year old 390s.

Maybe more if they were in perfect condition.

Assumptions:

Boards depreciate at varying rates. Let's say 30% per season for a board like the Artifact.
Bindings also depreciate at varying rates. Let's say 40% for the 390.

3 years = 2 seasons to devalue
Artifact = $360 new, $360*.7 = $252, $252*.7 = $176.40 = $175
390 = $220 new, $220*.6= $132, $132*.6 = $79.20 = $80

That equals $255 for both the Artifact and 390 from 3 seasons ago. Brand new.

or

50% of current retail, 10% off per year, 20% added for in-demand items
$580*.4 = $232

Take off 5-20% for wear and tear (let's say 15% due to chips and such), and you get $197.20.
