Have you ever thought about selling your video games? Maybe you don’t play them anymore and they are just taking up space, maybe it’s a rare game and you think it’s worth something.
If the thought of selling your video games ever crossed your mind, then the second thought was probably, “how much are these videos games worth?”
That’s a tough question to answer. But if you are seriously considering selling your video games, you should have a general idea of what they are worth prior to listing them for sale anywhere. Here are our tips to try to come up with a reasonable valuation:
Check What Recent Games Sold For On eBay
Regardless if your video game is a rare collectible item or just a used video game you want to sell for some cash, the ultimate selling price will only be what someone else is willing to pay, no more and no less. One of the quickest ways to roughly estimate that value is to see what similar video games sold for on eBay using their advanced search and filtering for only completed auctions.
Compare Your Game’s Condition To The Recent Sale
If you found similar games that sold on eBay, you’ve got a great baseline to work from. The next thing you’ll want to do is adjust for condition. If your game is brand new, or if it’s a collectible in great condition and the comparable listings you found were for used games or collectibles in poor condition, then you should adjust your expected value up. If your video game is in relatively worse condition compared to the listing you found, then you should expect to yield a lower sale price than the comparable listing. This is why it’s so important to store all your collectibles properly!
Speak To A Professional
Even with the steps above, valuing your video game is more of an art than a science. Therefore if you’re dealing with a video game of any significant value, you should speak to a professional prior to listing it for sale anywhere.
