I'm looking to buy a used Gaggia Classic. Is $240 a good price for one without mods? It seems high since I almost bought a modded one for $300 but the guy I agreed to buy if from actually agreed to sell to multiple people :\
Also, I'm looking to sell my 1 year old Nespresso Citiz (without the milk frother) locally on Craigslist. Is $150 too high or too low? It does include extras.

$240 seems high unless you can verify very good care of the machine, so that is does not need any fix. You could find them new around Christmas for about $350 IIRC, and now about $400 WLL shipped. It might be a fair price but, it could be full of scale and need work. They are not particularily difficult to fix if you are so inclined, and many people by used and cheap, and plan on disassembly and fix.
