Nucleus and Queen prices 2015

Recommended Posts

This should shoot down @dansar 's argument about cost of input setting the market price !

I thought his argument was that sharp materials costs allowed him to undercut the competition thus securing an easy sale. Warre on TM pricey. His not so. Did I miss something?

Nope

 

@yesbut Here's a scenario, you build a house and materials cost you $50k and you get a contract to sell the house for $200k (forget about all the other incidental costs, just keep it simple) profit to you $150k

I build the same house but I can buy the material for 50% less than you due to deals and contacts, I sell my house for $175k I get the same profit as you...but based on my sell price I get another contract to build 10 more of the same house and you dont, whos the winner?........

You are absolutely right, but if you sold your house at market value, meaning that's the price people are willing to pay then you would be $25K up on the deal. Then because you have delivered a quality product, you will get the gig for the next 10 anyway. Quality always sells.

where else can you buy them?

 

Only those people that have done some serious home work, know about bee clubs and sites such as this.

T/M is for average joe hunt, who would like some hives in the back yard, for one season ... if their lucky, ... I feel sorry for the suckers.

OR, for beeks who can't get any Nucs locally. Being in a beeclub does not guarantee the access to bees. Trademe is sometimes the ONLY option available. And that can mean taking what you can for whatever the market is demanding.

Agree with @Vincent Channon .

Sold nucs hives last year. Tm was the only place they get . They approached commercial beeks etc all said no.

Supply and demand

Nice looking NUC though.

5 Frame NUC FD | Trade Me

5 frame nuc $455 with 35 mins to go.

WOW

Nice looking NUC though.

Who remembers what this auction closed at.

$770 come to mind but I may be wrong.

Primus was the seller I believe?

This Auction closed in August last year.

I considered it to be a record price of $770 and the seller was then going by another username.

Of course it was a long time ago and Im getting old now
