Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

How can I get my antique items appraised?

 
The best way to get a proper valuation for your items is by hiring a professional appraiser. There are other informal options to consider which can also help you determine the market value of your antiques. You can get your items appraised at appraisal days on local auction houses, local antique shows, visiting appraisal shows, and even in antique shops and secondhand stores. Keep in mind that while free appraisals are generally easier on the budget, the verbal nature will prevent you from having any official documentation of your item’s value unless you have it appraised professionally.
 
 
 

Are antiques good investments?

 
Antiques and art pieces are considered as alternative investments, which means that they do not fall under stocks, cash, real estate or bonds. Investing in high valued antiques can be lucrative especially if you trade with the right people, but it is also best to watch out for fraudulent transactions that can come with buying and selling antiques and other collectables.
 
 
 
 

How does an antique lose its value?

 
 
There are many factors that contribute to the devaluation of antiques. This includes improper restoration, surface wear and oxidation. While older antiques are usually more expensive than relatively newer ones, considerable wear and tear on these items will drastically reduce the market value of your antiques.

It is best to have high valued antiques restored by a professional in order to avoid any damage that can make your item lose its worth.
