Russians resell equipment bought at old prices




December consumer boom dried up, made rashly buying keeps popping up on sites classified ads. A retail chains specializing in the sale of household appliances and electronics, record sales slump.


In December 2014 the main network for the sale of household appliances “made the cashier.” “M. Video” has increased its revenues by 52%, “Yulmart” – 20%, “The Messenger” – 25%. The peak demand occurred on 16 and 17 December – the first two days after the increase in the key rate of the Central Bank (from 10.5 to 17%) and growth in the euro above $ 100. Buyers feared devaluation of the Russian currency, so hurry to spend it.

The most popular products have become a TV with a wide screen sizes, offer to sell them today are most often found on the sites classified ads. Next in popularity followed by laptops and new models of iPhone, the company says “Yulmart.”

Now, purchased in December 2014 electronics and major appliances resell again. On various Internet resources Russians began to spread relevant ads.

“At Avito there are some ads, which indicated that the product was purchased in December to save money. Tendency to call it is still difficult – says Tatiana Starodubtseva, Head of Corporate Communications Avito. – However, do not rule out the possibility that after some time, the number of ads and the demand for equipment in the secondary market will increase. ”

The most popular products online iPhone 6. It became the model Apple most Russians offer to buy up and make a 10% discount, according to the website Mir24 . Meanwhile, online auctions filled Ads that sell small kitchen appliances.
Lots with large TVs and large appliances are found almost more often than others, but the above products to sell much more complicated. By and large, the “overall” electronics expensive and very few people want.

But some experts fear about the fact that private traders, buying equipment, will compete with the major networks, are not justified. Prices low privateers will not name, but no guarantees. Return the goods in case of damage can not be privately owned. But it is possible that by the end of the first quarter of 2015 proposals on private sales will be much more tempting, the only question is price.
