Sellers now are more savvy on what their stuff can bring, based on many indicators. Ebay's "sold" listing options included. Buyers are expected to also do their homework. A new class of buyer are "resellers". They need a lowball price to make a few bucks from the uninformed sellers. It's funny to me to see buyer ads with a recently bought item still on a trailer that is for sale. They don't even unload it. I'm amazed at how much stuff is going to "garage sales" that is just 1 micro-step above junk. Sellers won't even clean it up, straighten a bent part, or clean off the weeds. Around here "Barn Sales" get premium prices. City dwellers and suburbanites seem to believe that Country sellers are just hicks who don't know the current value of things.
