and yet no one has made an offer. Its called the art of the sale. I would like what I asked for it. I know that isn't entirely possible but some people do impulse buy and you cant ignore that mentality, especially with the amount of people who have BTC from the pre-spike days. Any one who is truly interested will make an offer they feel is fair; and if I believe that offer is likewise i'll take it.
You have to remember that just like lowballing somebody can turn them sour on a transaction, so can asking way too much.
A better way to do this thread would be to put your account in that "steam calculator" site and link it. That way people can see the "value" of the account. For example, if I wanted to sell mine it might go something like this.
"$1100 value for only $499.99. Why spend months hoping and begging for a sale when you can now own all your favorites for 60% off?http://www.steamcalculator.com/id/tito13kfm
Act now and I'll throw in a copy of Portal 2 at no charge!
Respond within the next 24 hours and I'll slash the price to only $399.99. That's a savings of $700 from retail :O "
Let's break this down. I bought nearly all of these games on sale and only spent about $300 total acquiring them. Adding a copy of Portal 2 would sweeten the pot, and I'd still come out ahead. There is a reason that sales and marketing degrees exist. It's the same reason that every single department store holds a 50% off mattress sale nearly every single week. People like to see value. Offering 100 games for $400 sounds like a ripoff. Offering $1100 worth of games, plus a bonus AAA title for 70% off retail sounds amazing.
Edit: Also highlighting the big names works great too. Steam account containing Portal, Half Life 2, and Oblivion! Damn, I should have finished out my marketing degree instead of this worthless CE degree.
