Quite simply, competition. Buyers bidding competitively at auction for desirable antiques and collectibles will drive prices across the board to a fair market value, another advantage of auction is that an entire estate can be liquidated in a day or two. No leftovers and no wondering what to do with unsold items. Whether your estate is full of antiques, mid-century modern furniture, gold jewelry, silver high-end designer items, a collection of vintage toys, or anything in between, an auction is a great way to find specialized buyers for your items.
