Default Used FEC Cost?

Is there any one in here who fancies himself an FEC appraiser? Maybe some one know knows the details of several past models and what each one is "worth" on the open market? I've got a line on a used FEC-100, and while I think it's a good price, I'd like to get the input from some one who knows these things. Lemme know, thanks.

No expert here

Considerations are:
Year
Controller (IQ 4 or prior)
Condition
# of shelves (basic 4 or the 6-7 add on)

Probably a couple of others, but those are the top of my list.

Great Cookers

It's an older one with a Traeger controller. I feel confident that I can replace that with a PID controller relatively easily (I already own one). I'm not sure on the auger mechanism (ramp or no), but I plan to check on that and the racks soon. I've seen it before, and I think it's in pretty good shape, but will check that as well. The person selling it is a "BBQ friend" who I'll see in the future, so I have a little bit of confidence in the quality. My big question is the value on it. I may ask about details in PM once I know more soon. Thanks!
