I do not know if this is the only reason, though.
You can still get the Chamber of Secrets in UK MISB for £50-£75 every now and again, so that one is way over priced.
You calling them overpriced probably isn't a fair label in this case, as these are auction sales. People are bidding up to these costs. I just wanted to make that distinction in case you assumed that these were buy-it-now sales. Overpaying perhaps, but the sellers aren't overpricing anything here.
you're absolutely right. thats market price I guess if these are finished auctions. Still surprised on Chamber of Secrets, as that tends to be a lowish set in terms of price in the UK.
Some definitely command a steep price, but if you are patient most can be had for semi-reasonable prices.
You've definitely chosen three sets that are quite rare as far as Harry goes, especially the Hungarian Horntail.
I was recently able to secure about 95% of the Durmstrang ship from a split lot of mixed lego I purchased from ebay though. I was very lucky that all the required Sand Blue/Dark Red pieces were present. Those would of been a tidy sum to source from Bricklink versus the few dollars it cost to replace the missing rigging pieces.
