    Default How much is my iPad worth?

    In the next few months, before the 5th generation iPad comes out, I want to sell my 16GB iPad 2. The iPad is in almost perfect condition. It has a few tiny dot sized scratches in both bottom corners. Besides that it is flawless. I want to know how much it is worth. How much is it worth alone? And if I bundled a 100 $ Logitech Bluetooth keyboard (that works as a smart cover), a wall charger, and a rubberized plastic case (5 $)how much value wpuld it add?

    Your best bet is to go to various trade sites and see what the going rate is for the iPad 2 and then adjust your selling price accordingly. Whatever you decide to do, if you plan on posting it for sale here in the Marketplace section of the forum, be sure to follow the guidelines. You can read the guidelines HERE.

    You can get a refurbished one from apple for $319 and that comes with a year warrantee and is in like new condition. My guess would be maybe $300 with the keyboard. It's two generations soon to be 3 generations old.

    iPads hold their value and I consistently see 275 to 320 for 2nd gen. I personally think you can extract more value by unbundling the keyboard and accessories.

    If you are talking about selling locally on craig's list maybe, but when you sell online, the additional shipping costs can make it not worth it to sell separately. And then there is the issue of the extra time/hassle of selling separately. For big ticket items, fine, but the smaller ticket items, it is just not worth the time after you pay the shipping costs.

    Yes, if you want the most money then you'll have to do local sales which cut out the profit for eBay and shipping but is more Time consuming. Depends what's more important.

    I still don't comprehend if you could buy one from apple for $319 why anyone would pay more for a used one.

    Some people don't know about the refurbs and also they aren't always available on the site.

    Educated consumers wouldn't. You also have international buyers who can't get the refurbs directly from apple, but then you have the shipping costs to factor in.

    The earlier you sell it, the more you can get for it. It just depends on how you feel about being without an iPad.

    I do not want to be "iPad-less" for long at all. I would be ok with like 1-2 weeks. When will Apple most likely release the next iPad?

    All you can do is look at what they have done in the past and make a guess until an announcement is made.

    They can buy a certified like new refurb directly from Apple for $319 + tax. So go from there based on the condition of your device and how much you like your family member/friend.

    Try friends and fam first FB Instagram etc .. Then this forum .. Craigslist ... Then go eBay .. Yes eBay has fees but typically people pay more and they pay the shipping so really it's just the fees. I personally use eBay before Craigslist just because of shady people.
    Normally when a new ipad is announced it's about a 2 week wait before you can order .. So you could always wait till then but once new one is announced yours will lose some value
