Sounds good. Mine will be ready for you in 15 years.
lol, of course! Ever hear of the market for lemons? It uses cars as an example of asymmetric information in a trade. From that, you can guess that those who sell their cars right after getting them probably have lemons that they want to get rid of. Or there is something else that makes them not want the car.

As a basic idea, those who have cherries will hold onto them for 15 years and not sell. Because buyers don't know what is a cherry or a lemon, it drags the whole market down to the average pricing. Therefore, it's worth it to sell if you have a lemon and not worth it to sell if you have a cherry.
