Fine Art, by definition, is a thing of beauty. Unlike other collectibles, art is commonly displayed and enjoyed on a daily basis instead of carefully stored away.
But sometimes, you may just want to sell your fine art, and sell it fast. Maybe you need to free up cash to buy another piece of art you like more. Or maybe it appreciated in value a lot and you’d like to reap your reward. Or maybe you just don’t want it anymore.
Whatever your reason is for selling your fine art fast, here are our suggestions to make sure the process goes as smoothly and successfully as possible:
Know It’s Value
When selling your fine art collection, the most important thing to know is the approximate value of the piece of art. This will help you quickly analyze selling opportunities as well as offers from specific sellers, and make the process that much faster. Ultimately, the value of a piece of art is simply the price someone is willing to pay for it, so you can’t really know the true value until you start soliciting offers, but it’s always great to have a general ballpark estimate in mind based off of past purchase prices and comparable recent sales.
Know Your Options For Selling Locally
If you’re looking to sell your art fast, selling locally is your best bet. When wanting to sell art fast, selling at the best price is the main trade off. Since the ultimate selling price depends on what a buyer is willing to pay, give yourself the advantage by knowing where to look for the best buyers locally. The best place to try first would be any local auction houses to yield the best price. For this to work, timing as well as location need to work out perfectly, so it’s not a reliable method. The next best local place to sell your fine art would be a collection store. Pawn shops and open estate sales would be another great way to unload your art fast, but be aware that you probably won’t yield the best price for your fine art here.
Know Your Options For Selling Online
You can still sell your art fast online, but only if you know where and how to look. The first obvious choice would be to sell your art on eBay, however between setup times, waiting times and shipping, it is hardly a fast process. Sure, you could make your auction a quick 24-hour or 3-day auction, but you may yield a significantly lower price. Another place would be Craigslist, but there are no “end-dates” on Craigslist, so the process could be shorter or it could be much, much longer.
