Bob’s Market Message

November 13, 2017

DAA Northwest celebrated 25 years in business this past week. Thank you to all who shared in the celebration. It was a personally impactful week on many levels. $170,000 was raised for charity on Wednesday night, bringing the event total from its inception to over $1.7 million. The Anniversary Sale Fundraiser’s beneficiaries – Young Life, Union Gospel Mission, Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery and Spring of Hope International depend it as a means of continuing the good work they do in support of the less fortunate. Thank you for helping us to help them!!

The market indicates that it is indeed fall. While stable, demand has backed off a bit. Trucks remain in good supply (for now) and buyers are able to be a bit more selective about what they inventory. The trade and mid-price markets remain solid.

Last week’s results:
DAA Northwest sold 1900 units of 3400 consigned for a 55% sale. DAA Seattle followed up with their own 54% sale on 900 Consigned units last Friday.

Thank you for 25 years of business and friendship!
