If anyone truly wants to sell their RV-14A, or 14 for $200k or under let me know. Iím withdrawing the money from investments today and will be ready to purchase immediately. No pre-buy, just a quick transaction.

Add $60-80K for full build assist and you are well into the high 200ís for a -14 and north of $300K for a -10.

Iíve never understood why the ďmarketĒ doesnít account for the labor required to build these planes.

That being said, some of the top tier airplanes never make it to market. They are sold privately and are not advertised. I know what Iíve been offered for our RV-7A and itís well above what the ďmarketĒ pricing would indicate.

Back to the original post, you'll pay a lot more than $100K for a really nice 7/7A.

There was a 9A listed here a few days ago for $150K. I have top notch Garmin panel and an a 1 year old IO-375 in my 7A, and if I was selling I'd probably ask $150K.

Like others have mentioned, asking price is not always the price that one may get. I also saw a RV7 here for $176k and change. It will be interesting if those two planes will get sold for the asking price.

Sounds like a $150K incentive to lose some weight. Better for your wallet in many ways... Flying, grocery bill, long-term health-care...

So you're saying if the op would just loose weight $50k will get him the same plane as $200k?

Default Really simple

there are some who buy Lexus, there are some who buy Toyotas. Both are reliable, but the Lexus gets you prettier women; the Toyota gets you more money in the bank. Pick your poison.

When Mazda first rolled out the Miata, I remember them selling for twice the $12,500 Mazda-advertised price, so the small supply obviously contributes.

But it may be that something else is changing, too. The "cost to build" for a large part of the -10 and -14 fleet (compared with older models) now appears to include $60-$80K for a build shop, per KatanaPilot's post.

Add to that the $13-$14K higher price for the quick-build kits, and this is very "Merry Christmas" news for all of us slow-builders. Our airplanes can't possibly turn out to be worth $70-$90K less because we constructed them ourselves. I can't wait to explain all of this to my darling (and totally supportive) wife!
