There are always multiple markets. There are plenty of ways to segment and evaluate this: transaction time, buyer characterizations, seller motivations, etc.
eBay is an efficient "channel" to reach lots of different buyers. It's also open and highly visible so we all get to observe the data and form opinions. The only entity that truly understands the overall re-sale market is Marriott as they have a role in 100% of the transactions.
I am in the segment of bargain shoppers looking to buy a very specific product at a very specific price limit. This thread was initiated to express my opinion that a new (to me) seller was using this channel to advertise their higher priced inventory. Since novice, amateur, one-off sellers also use this channel, I was concerned that they may form the incorrect opinion that they too can sell their possibly distressed property at this higher premium price and that will clog "the machine" for a while with auctions ending without bids, thus, delaying my opportunity to buy the item I seek at a recently establish value I can relate to. :annoyed:
