A leader in value information,WorthPoint.com is an online resource for researching and valuing antiques, art and collectibles. WorthPoint empowers the antique and collectible industry by providing a steady stream of new data and quality information – ultimately helping improve the transparency in pricing and value between sellers and buyers.
WorthPoint offers both a do-it-yourself (DIY) model as well as access to a knowledge network of professional appraisers with expertise in numerous collecting verticals. Their do-it-yourself model is a simple solution that gives users access to over 130 million historical prices and images. This data is aggregated from both online marketplaces and from some of the leading auction houses. Setting the right value for an item is the crucial first step in a fair and amicable agreement. Once the price and terms of your transaction are set, we recommend using an online escrow service – like PaySAFE® – to make doubly sure that your dream collectable doesn’t turn into a financial nightmare.
With a collectable and antiques marketplace that is often fraught with reproductions and outright counterfeits, doing your own background work when it comes to pricing and valuation is a must. Whether you use WorthPoint or another trusted professional, be sure you know what you’re getting into before you get too deep.
