Youíll get naysayers but donít get discouraged. I found a -6 with 94 hours on a new IO-360 angle valve and new CS prop and IFR panel for under 40k. It needed paint, but flew darn good. There are deals to be had with a little patience.

I predict prices will start dropping as 2020 approaches. Many people who don't fly often will find an ADS-B upgrade not practical, and many buyers who fly in ADS-B required areas will not look at planes that are not equipped. Even if a plane's price is discounted by the cost to upgrade, buyers won't be able to easily fly it home. If they do, they will then have to wait, potentially quite a while, for the upgrade to be able to use their new purchase. A large % of the population lives in or near ADS-B required airspace.
We have seen the same with Glass panels. The planes with steam gauges are starting to loose value even though that is what many of us prefer. I think we will start to see really nice RV6's in the $35K range within a year.

Given the consistent loss of pilot population, we're all flying bad investments, more or less.

Me? I don't care. I wanted to be here my whole life.

They are out there but..... most are mid to high time, have alternative engines (not saying thatís bad, just know what your getting into), have steam panels, less than good craftsmanship, etc...
Robís suggestion would be well over $40k unless you have a powerplant laying around.
An RV 6A with O320 Lycon, CS, Low time engine, steam, lots of visible ďsmileyísĒ and rivet banging dents, poor paint, etc.... just sold here for $46k.

I feel it was well bought and well sold.

If you up your range to $50k, a lot more options open up.

Would that make the inverse be true?

Those that are ADSB equipped and have a glass panel may increase relative to the average...
