What To Look Out For When Selling Antiques

When selling your antique treasures, it's important to be aware of certain things that could potentially make your item less valuable. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

– inspect the piece for damage; if there is any, disclose it before listing the item

– be honest about what you believe the item is worth

– do your research; know what comparable items have sold for in the past. You can also search online to know more about how to sell your antiques.

– take photos of the pieces before and after they're cleaned and prepared to show their condition

– if possible, do your research before listing and make changes (if necessary) based on the results

– use proper terminology and descriptions to help potential buyers make informed buying decisions. In the most recent eBay survey, more than two-thirds of buyers expect sellers to accurately disclose their item’s condition and its value before completing the transaction. This is perhaps why a whopping 90 percent of sellers reported selling an item they thought was worth less than what it sold for.

If you fail to disclose the true value of an item when selling on eBay, you could be opening yourself up to a heated dispute with your buyer, as well as a fraud claim. By following the steps above, you can avoid future disputes, protect your reputation and maintain positive feedback while also keeping your eBay business thriving!
