Collectibles can be valuable in a lot of ways. They can hold sentimental value. They can hold monetary value. They can hold collector value.
While sentimental value is something only the owner can determine, the monetary value of a collectible is tough to estimate with any sort of accuracy. That’s why there are a few situations where you’re best served if someone with experience appraises your collectibles.
Here are some of the reasons you should get your collectibles appraised by a trusted industry professional:
Before You Sell A Valuable Collection
If you are lucky enough to be in possession of a valuable collection you’re interested in selling, you should first get the collection appraised professionally. This will help set initial expectations so you don’t get disappointed or shocked at the final selling price and can plan accordingly. Additionally, a professional appraisal can help you determine where it would be best to sell your collection- if it’s extremely valuable, it may be worth selling to a professional broker or auction house. If it’s not too valuable, online or a local comic book store would be perfect to sell for quick cash.
When Deciding What To Do With A Collection
If you have a collection but you’re not sure if you want to sell or if you want to hold onto it, getting a professional appraisal can give you more accurate information that can help you make a decision you’re happy with. Otherwise, you could regret not selling or not holding onto it.
If Someone’s Made An Offer On Your Collection
If someone’s already made an offer on your collection before you went through the whole selling process, you should definitely get an appraisal. Without a professional appraisal, you may risk passing up on a great offer or accepting an extremely low offer. It’s always safe to make sure you have as much information as possible before accepting an offer, and a professional appraisal can get you just that.
