Determining what your collectibles are worth is more of an art than a science. However once you determine a rough estimate, selling to the right buyer significantly increases your chances of selling your collectibles close to that intrinsic value.
How do you find the right buyer? Who even is the right buyer? For the majority of the time, one of the best buyers you can sell to is a large nationwide collectibles dealer like Neat Stuff Collectibles! Here’s why:

They Know How To Resell Items, So They Are Willing To Pay More
When you sell your collectibles to a broker or dealer, it’s important to understand their own economics to truly understand how this transaction will play out for everyone. For example, if you’re selling to a small pawn shop in a sparsely populated area, chances are they may not be able to pay what they think your item is worth simply because they don’t know when they’ll find an interested buyer for it. And the longer something sits unsold, the more cash they have tied up in inventory instead of putting it to work to buy more items. Put that in contrast with a large organization that’s running like a well-oiled machine. They can predictably determine how quickly an item will sell within their system and workflow, reducing their risk of inventory sitting idle compared to the small pawn shop. This gives them an advantage and the ability to pay you more for the same item.
They Understand Customer Service Is Important
Selling your collectibles can be an arduous task. For many people, one of the most important parts of the sales process is simplicity and enjoyability. Dealing with individual buyers through a marketplace like eBay or Facebook Marketplace can be frustrating, time consuming and could still yield no results. Larger brokers and dealers know that they need to keep you happy and provide a fantastic service in order to keep you coming back, and that means a better selling experience for you!
They Usually Have A Streamlined Process
Part of providing great customer service is having a well-documented, repeatable and reliable process to move the transaction through. Larger organizations need something like this in place to operate, which benefits you as the seller. Smaller organizations and individual buyers may not have a well defined process, which means a lot of uncertainty in terms of timing, pricing and next steps.
They Have The Money To Pay You A Fair Price
Finding an interested and motivated buyer for your collectibles is a challenge. Nothing can be more frustrating than finally connecting with an interested buyer who sees the value for your items and is willing to pay up for it, only to find out that they don’t have the funds to actually complete the transaction. Working with a larger organization, this unfortunate situation will almost never happen since they are well-financed and can pay cash for items they’re interested in.
