year to buy units. Due to its tax refund time and the networks are playing re-runs and runs more now then ever before! So you get the newbiews with there tax refunds jacking up the prices dreaming all night how they are going to pay well over retail for a unit. ugg. Cant wait til end of spring first of summer.

You just have to wait it out.  Or do like I do and have fun with the newbies.  Most of my auctions have been paid up / high turnout / high price.  There are still a few that are the old way it seems.  Mine yesterday only saw 18 or so people and lockers under $200.  I bought 3 trash lockers for $65.  Just one of those trash lockers (dozen garbage bags) went for over a $100 last thursday.

I'm hitting any auction I can right now just due to change in my job.  New manager that I'm getting micro manages like crazy.  If your gone away from desk for 30 mins you better have it on your schedule / notify her.  So my lunch hour auctions will be going bye-bye I fear.

It sucks here in Tennessee (specifically Nashville) also. Spent the last 2 days at auctions (7 facilities/43 units) and didn't even attempt to bid. Huge crowds and absurd prices. You gotta love opening bids higher than your max! I'm heading out to a couple next week in very rural areas, maybe I'll find some sanity there. Good luck everyone.

My tax refund had little impact as to when I wanted to start buying.

It was merely the timing with my partner and our schedules that will lead us to likely make our first buy in March.

I would like to make an honest go at Auctions/Resale.

The idea of working for myself is very appealing.

Good luck but you need to put "WORKING" In all capitols.  ;D  This is a lot of work.
