Sometimes it won't--that's been my experience, anyways. Missed several "golden opportunities" myself.
If I know something is a deal, I hop on it, knowing that I can at least make my money back on it if I decide to sell it. If it's something I'm not looking for, personally, I'll pick it up if it's something one of my students would want. If I'm not sure it's a deal, but I *might* be interested, I'll whip out my phone and price-check online. Pretty handy.
