New or used outboard

i am in the market for a small outboard somthing between 4 and 6 horses I am upgrading from a yamaha f2.5

I found I can get a new mariner 5hp for 875 or a 6hp for 935

I looked around for a used outboard but I can't seem to find anything resonable.

For example my local dealer wants 550 for a 2006 5hp tohatsu but that seems mental when I can get a new marinet for only about 300 more.

Am I missing somthing
