DO YOU UNKNOWINGLY OWN A RARE TREASURE?
Good appraisers are the unsung heroes in the majority of treasure stories we write. Finding the right appraiser, has literally been life-changing for some.
While rare treasures can be found in all kinds of nooks and crannies, by people from all walks of life. It’s usually a seasoned professional appraiser, who's the first to recognize its potential value.
SAVE $400 PER HOUR
Top antique appraisers can charge $200 - $400 per hour (plus travel expenses).
Hiring an appraiser to check your antiques for a treasure can get expensive fast. There is another way, though, and it's completely free.
Top auctioneers offer free appraisals because they're highly motivated to find rare antique treasures. Why? If they're first to identify a rare antique, they can be first to offer you assistance if you sell. Then if your antique fetches a fortune, there will be more money for you and more commission (and prestige) for the auction house. Win-win.
MILLION DOLLAR TREASURES HIDING IN EVERYDAY PLACES
Million dollar treasures are found every year. Sometimes they lay in waiting for decades, hidden in plain sight in everyday places until the right person notices them.
The world's best auction appraisers have years of focused experience in their particular niche, which is why they can spot the most valuable items so quickly. The leading auction houses have had teams of these highly skilled individuals, identifying, marketing, and selling the world's rarest antiques for decades and in some cases, centuries.
It's because of their knowledge, experience, and reputations. They have the confidence of the world's wealthiest collectors.
If you find that you own a rare antique, their experience and connections may have a tremendous effect on how much your item receives.
