Questions about buying my first enlarger?

So I would really like to get in to some film photography and start making some prints at home. I've been looking on eBay for a used enlarger and there seems to be a sheer endless number of really cheap enlargers on offer. However it is really hard for me to judge if these good deals really are as good as they seem, or if you are just buying a piece of junk.

For example this offer here seems to be really good. It includes a lens and says the condition is very good, and yet the price seems suspiciously low.¨

Essentially what I guess I am asking is whether you can really get an enlarger so cheaply or if you have to spend more money if you want one that actually works?
