When it comes to selling a used hot tub, it's not as different as buying a new one. In fact, it's similar to buying a used car. Like cars, some spas have more features and are equipped with more powerful engines.
If your hot tub is starting to look old, it's time to consider if it's time to replace it. If it's been sitting empty for a long time, it has no value.
Your used spa is like a car that has been continuously maintained. It has all the equipment and heats up fully. It has a few scratches or two, but it still works perfectly.
How To Sell a Used Spa
1. Trade it into a Spa Dealer: If you're looking for a quick and easy way to get rid of a spa, this is the place to go. Not only will they get you the best trade-in value, they'll also provide you with a brand new one in place in less than 24 hours.
2. Sell it to Friends or Family: This is a fast way to get rid of a hot tub that's been enjoyed by family and friends. You can also get a good deal if you're a hot tub fan and are looking for a place to park.
3. Sell it on Craigslist: Search for the best results for your Spa Pak ad. List all the details about your product, including model, make, and equipment.
The spa's cover and lifter are in good condition. Also, note any issues with the plumbing. If possible, list the spa as Cash and carry.
The more detail you put into your ad, the better it will get. Also, make sure to include the manufacturer's specifications or contact information.
Before taking photos, polish anything that's under the equipment area, and wipe down any pipes and equipment with a wet rag. Also, make sure the pictures show the full water content of the equipment.
If you've never uploaded pictures before, connect your camera or phone to your PC's USB port. Once done, go to Craigslist and add the photos you want to save.
How to Price a Used Spa
Hot tubs and automobiles are both sold to a wide variety of people. These two products are also popular with high-end custom buyers.
For example, at Hot Tub Works, a variety of popular brands are sold at prices that are similar to a Cadillac. Some of these include Hot Springs, Jacuzzi, and Baja.
It is best to know the exact price of the spa when it was purchased. If you don't have this information, you will need to use a different pricing formula.
Take the amount that you think is worth and divide it by half. This will give you an understanding of how much used spa products are worth.
You can also search for For sale listings for spas and hot tubs on craigslist.org. You'll also see how people are pricing these luxuries in their area.
There are a variety of prices for non-working spas on Craigslist, ranging from Free to $75 for a non-working spa that requires a lot of TLC. For luxury spas, there are some that are asking for $5,000 to $10,000. In most cases, people are asking for around 25% to 33% of the price they paid for the spa if it's in good working condition. Expect to get a lot less than what you paid for it. Depreciation on a used spa is much faster and cuts deeper than depreciation on a car.
