Hello! I would absolutely love to know what the resale values for my AirPort Extreme TC and Express routers are. I'm no longer using them and I would like to sell them but I cannot seem to find an exact price, although the range seems to be around 10 - 100, which is something I would not sell these machines for. Thanks!

It depends on the generation and condition, as well as the platform used.

I bought a bunch of 6th Gen AP Extremes a few years back to create my own pseudo mesh system, after my disappointment with performance of an expensive Linksys Mesh system that I intended to replace my single 6th Gen AirPort Extreme.

Ended up returning the Linksys and purchased five 6th Gen.

These ranged about $45-$70, iirc.

With the HDD in even the newest Time Capsules being pretty old now, I suspect that being a APE TC might not hold its value as much as it once did.

I could be wrong though.

Gotcha. What about the sale price for an Express, two for that matter?

I think the newest express is holding its value pretty well, probably due to it being AirPlay 2 compatible.

Although, I picked one up locally from someone giving it away for free, so it depends.

as well as the platform used.
I forgot to say platform used to sell it.

I would expect to pay more for one on ebay than I would on a local forum, like Craigslist.

6th generation AirPort Extremes (the only version with 802.11ac, the only version worth still buying IMO) go for about $20 to $30 on eBay. I’ve bought a couple at that price, and there’s no way I’d spend any more than that. They’re solid devices, but they’re 10+ years old now. If you’re looking to make bank reselling your old Apple AirPort devices, either find someone gullible (don’t) or think again.
