How Much My Antique Worth
If you’re scouring the internet, trying to decide on the right antique dealers in Venice, but don’t know how much the item you’re selling is worth, you’ll be happy to know that we intricately examine all the details of the antiques and then offer fair deals to you! It’s quite often that residents from Venice and its surrounding community will come to Sarasota Antique Buyers because they simply have to sell them and make the most money out of it. Sometimes the items in question were inherited, while in other cases they were picked up on a whim at a garage or estate sale. As antique dealers we frequently hear from clients that because the style of art isn’t something they enjoy, then their items must not hold any true value. At Sarasota Antique Buyers we consider:
- Age and rarity: Age and rarity don’t always go hand in hand, and they do not always contribute to demand, but both of these play an important part in the process.
- History and source: Where is it from and what historical significance does it hold? As antique dealers, if we don’t know the
- Condition: In order to provide an accurate market analysis, our antique dealers also need to inspect the condition of the piece you want to sell. If the item is rather common, its condition can have a great impact on the value; while an antique that is exceedingly rare makes its condition less important.
- Demand: The more popular a piece, the higher its demand and subsequent value. This is usually determined by a combination of the above factors, but can also be influenced by various media influences or other outside factors.
The reasons an antique buyer can so accurately assess an item’s value is because they truly appreciate the story it has to tell. And when we evaluate your piece, we’ll gladly share with you everything we know about it!
