Default RE flips days later

Guess its to be expected, and I've seen it before, but stuff sold only a few days ago at a leading auction house immediately shows up on eBay at grossly inflated prices. An item that sold for $1200 a few days ago is now $3000. Always makes me scratch my head when I see this. Are there really a lot of people out there dropping this kind of loot on Ebay who don't see what is going on at the leading AHs?

I see sometimes when some of the major auction houses auctions end usually late at night the next day the guy has it listed on Ebay. That isn't even possible in my view. Even if you pay the next day it can't be shipped by the time it's listed maybe 10 hours or less later and the auction house don't ship out hours after the auction ends. I always think what if it sells on Ebay and the item gets lost to the Ebay seller waiting for it to come from the auction house. Not what you tell the Ebay buyer Sorry I don't have it in hand. It's a joke.

Like a photo sold at RMY for $40 makes its way to ebay for $800. Then touted on Net54's BST with a "discount" off ebay price. Folks can do what they want, but some cases are just laughable.

I've seen people buy photos at RMY and then try to sell for 10x on ebay.

That's a modest mark-up in some cases.

lol...are you talking about some of the photos on ebay that are being listed for insane prices? Just turns people off who are looking to get into collecting and see the prices. Many do not sell and just sit and sit. Nothing wrong with wanting to make a profit but god daaaaaaaaamn
