I am trying to find out how much i could sell 2 DC-9-30's and 2 CRJ-200's. The CRJ-200 was delivered in May of 1991, before the initial launch commercial customer recieved the aircraft in November of 1992. The DC-9-30's were purchased from TWA and are stage III compliant. Thanks for your help.

Does it not only depend on registration, certification, cycles, hours, total time, engines, customer installed components, available jets on the market, macro economics, high stakes finance, the percentage of light that shows the moon on the 13th sunday of the year and the price of a blue-blood, chinese chicken in a deli?
In other terms, it really depends on who is your buyer and who is your seller and who is your marketer.

Penguinflies pretty much nailed it for you. It all depends on who is in the market for such equipment and what they're willing to pay. The DC-9s are probably just about fully depreciated, so they're worth the value of the scrap aluminum they're made of, especially if it's due for any sort of major inspections, maintenance, or overhaul, C check, or D check. The CRJs are probably worth significantly more. You can get a list of certified air carriers from the FAA; perhaps you could get in touch with them and see if they're looking for any used equipment. Otherwise, you could put an ad in trade-a-plane. So do you have four spare jets just sitting around?

Remember, the value of an aircraft boils down to how much money it can make for the buyer. How much will it cost to get it into flying condition, how much will it cost to operate and maintain, and how much revenue it will generate. It has nothing to do with whether it is fully depreciated or not, how old it is (other than the op/maint cost impact) or how much the seller originally paid.
I would guess a used airplane is worth about the revenue it would generate in one year, less the cost to make it flightworthy.
