Sell Inherited Jewelry – Best Way to Sell Inherited Jewelry
Sell inherited jewelry – an expert guideline
When it comes to an inheritance, expert advice is priceless. Especially if you inherited jewelry, gold, diamonds, or watches, you need a reliable partner to help you sell your items for a great price. reDollar.com offers inheritance consulting for individuals, liquidators, or attorneys. We’ll help you get an idea of how much your inherited jewelry is worth, and of course, you can also sell inherited jewelry to us.
Detailed Report for Records
It’s very important to know that you’ll get a detailed report if you sell your inherited jewelry with us. We list the value of every single item, and we also explain how we determined the value of each individual piece. A detailed report is extremely important if the proceeds will be split among multiple heirs, or if a liquidator or an attorney needs proof of how much money can be paid for the inheritance.
reDollar.com vs. independent appraisers
Many people think that hiring an independent appraiser is good first step when selling inherited jewelry. The problem is, appraisers often estimate the retail replacement value or the insurance value, not the fair market value. The difference between the replacement value and the market value is significant. If you take a closer look at auction results, you’ll see jewelry appraised in the range of $20,000 selling for $5,000 or even less.
If you’d like to sell inherited jewelry, you’ll want to get a clear idea of the current market value and not of the retail replacement value. Don’t get us wrong – it’s better to hire an appraiser than to just sell to a local pawn shop or jeweler without knowing anything about your jewelry and its value. But the costs for appraisals are also significant. You can easily end up paying $75 to at least $125 per item for an appraisal. If the appraised item is worth just $1,000, that means you’ve already spent about 12.5% just to get your item appraised.
