OR STRAIGHT SALE?
of a collection you have a number of options open to you: you
can either sell through auction or you can sell for a fixed price
en bloc to an individual by private treaty. Obviously if you sell
by private treaty there are NO auction house fees, NO unsold returns,
NO concerns of letting this valuable collection be in someone
elses hands without prior payment or insurance costs and you know
exactly what price you are going to receive
undoubtedly achieve good prices but they can also be a lottery.
You are dependent upon the right people turning up to bid against
each other otherwise your items will sell for much less than expected.
That is assuming the right people actually know about the auction,
are not on holiday, have the disposable income immediately available
on the day the auction takes place etc... Each auction lot lasts
for seconds and once the hammer comes down you are stuck with
that price. There are no second chances.
