Question What is this craftsman lawn tractor worth?

I just bought a craftsman lawn tractor for $200 Im guessing its about 7yrs old. Its in very good condition and has a 19.5hp briggs, hydrostatic tranmission, and a 42" mower deck. I wanted a older tractor thats built heavy but I thought it was a fair price. I was wondering if I got a good deal. Also what is it worth? I would like to sell it if I find a old one I like. Thanks alot

It's obviously worth $200, because you were willing to pay that. Now, I guess your goal is to make a few dollars on the deal. Hopefully, someone here can give you a thumbs up on value. But, prices of things vary from area to area and what people are willing to pay will vary too.

I just watched a JD stx38 hydro on ebay sell for $220, its the next town over and it was in sorry shape and wouldnt start with a busted hood. I guess maybe this craftsman is worth 300, I was hoping more like 500. The reason I got it was to trade. I wanted to build a little front end loader for a lawn tractor thats why I wanted a old heavy duty tractor.

If it's in good shape, looks good, tires stay up, little or no rust, no smoke or engine noises, etc..., it should be worth $500 or better.

If someone on Ebay will pay $13,000 for a meatball with the image of the Virgin Mary on it, your tractor is worth $500..

Here is a link to one on ebay, this looks like the same tractor, same mower deck to. The only difference is the one I bought is 19.5hp. So far it looks like I didnt do to bad unless there worth more in PA.

In my opinion, Ebay typically represents the upper limit of what something might be worth. I see older Craftsman tractors at auctions, yard sales pretty regular, and in my area they tend to sell for $200-400 if in decent running condition, $75 to 200 if rough but running, and less than $100 if not running. Of course, attachments beyonf the mower deck add value.
