Thank you for expressing your interest in working with Cash Landy Pro Sales, Inc., d.b.a. SoundBroker.com "the name to trust" when it comes to buying new and pre-owned Professional AUDIO, LIGHTING, STAGING, & VIDEO equipment. Serving our industry since 1997, SoundBroker.com buys and sells with most (if not all) of the major companies in our industry and has agreements with manufacturers to sell their new AStock, B-Stock, Rep Samples and discontinued gear.
SoundBroker.com has a simple to use listing & selling system. All the "For Sale" listings appearing on SoundBroker.com are entered by our members that own the gear, such as yourself.
SoundBroker.com gets up to 25,000 visitors every day and most of them stop on our "Latest Listings" page. If the items that you have for sale are priced to sell and described correctly, we have found from experience that it will sell within the first two weeks of listing with us.
We want to publish your listing in the correct category on SoundBroker.com and in our "New Listings" section of our site, however to ensure that we get your listing entered into our system accurately and in a timely manner, it is imperative that you follow our instructions when you post it on SoundBroker.com. It is important to note that SoundBroker.com's search engine is very sophisticated, so that a buyer will be able to look up any item using tech specs or model or manufacturer.
I started SoundBroker.com in 1997 and I assure you that if you want to sell your gear quickly, you need to price it to sell quickly, describe it accurately in detail, include in the description: MFG, Model, Year of MFG, Basic Tech Specs and most importantly include as many recent pictures of the gear that you have.
With the exception of your sale items in our "Direct To Buyer" (D2B) program, SoundBroker.com adds our fee for service on top of your asking price. You need to tell us what you want for your sale item(s) and we add our percentage on top of your asking price. When we get an offer from a prospective buyer below your asking price, we will bring you the offer and depending on situation we will consider to negotiate our fee.
SoundBroker.com marks up your asking price by adding a minimum profit margin of between 10% & 15% on all items for sale except those under $2,500 where rather than working on a percentage, SoundBroker.com adds between $150 & $200 to your asking price. For these items you might want to consider a VIP-Loyalty Club Membership to list your items in the D2B, where the sale can go directly to you without SoundBroker.com adding in any fees on those sales.
For the most rewarding experience when listing your equipment for sale with SoundBroker.com, imagine you are the buyer and ask yourself the questions that you would ask a seller before you would purchase any technical equipment. It is our experience that the more detailed the description the faster an item sells.
However the best way to sell using SoundBroker.com is to price your items to sell. In reality, the buyer determines the actual sales price of the equipment and it will always be in direct ratio to the quantity of the item available (supply) for sale and the need of the potential buyer (demand). For the best results, please price your items for sale accordingly.
SoundBroker.com recommends that if you want a leg up and want all of your listings to appear bolded and at the top of the category that they fit into you should consider upgrading to a VIP-Loyalty Club Membership. For all the details click here or go to http://www.soundbroker.com/newuser/.
