Specialty Markets Report


Collectible Cars: Although Scottsdale is seemingly right around the corner, and we’re being teased almost daily by breathless emails from auction houses about the important cars that will be offered, there has also been strong activity in the affordable section of the spectrum.

Recreational Vehicles: For the first time in several months, the values of motorized units and towables have moved in different directions.

Powersports: Snowmobiles lead the way this month with a nearly 6% increase in value as we head into the colder months.

Heavy-Duty: Late Model Over the Road Tractors have leveled off while the older year models have been up and down but depreciating more since early summer.

Medium-Duty: The Wholesale Market continues its downward trend; however, some Older Models have stabilized.
