Selling used equipment

I've been checking Craigslist regularly lately to see if I can get some decent equipment to use for the astronomy groups I'm working on getting started with the local schools and the local area.
What is so ironic.. I'm finding many sellers "offering" their product at close to what it would cost to buy new?
Can anyone explain WHY you would want to buy a piece of equipment at near new price from someone you don't know and quality you don't know and not have the full warranty?
I can see at 60%-75% of the retail price... but sorry.. I'm not going to give you what I can go out and get "second/return" items direct from a dealer for, AND have their backing if there is an issue where your offering I'm left "fluttering in the wind" with.
