Loking for Input on Potential Craigs List Purchase
Hope this is the right place to pose this question. My son and I are new comers to collecting sets, mostly star wars. To date mostly new sets but I have bought a couple of used complete sets on BL and have been generally pleased with the experience and quality for those used sets.
On our local craigslist I was offered a set of 7 sets for a total price, which I estimate is ~25% less than the combined best bl price. The sets are used complete (all pieces + minifigs + instructions + box) and given there would be no shipping and I can inspect beforehand would you jump at this or hold out for better. If it helps I can post the sets and price but didnt want to overstep the expectations for this forum. Thanks!

Hold out for better? There's always better. How long do you want to wait and how much time do you have to keep searching???
Its no different that Ebay. If you have the time and patience you can play the auction game. Or, like me, you can simply find the best "Buy it Now" and be done with it.
If you want to play the wait and see game, your best chance at matching these prices will probably be in the summer when buying really cools off...and even then, how much are you really going to save (especially adding in your extra time and the shipping costs involved with multiple purchases).
Then I looked at the price guide from bricklink.com
The amount of sets sold is probably more than 5x since the numbers on brickpicker are coming from eBay, so the average is always lower than that of bricklink. So either you can see that the price is right on the money, or you are getting a deal if you are comparing it to whats on bricklink.
