Furniture Consignment Prices

Here are some tips on how to determine the price of your used furniture.

Used versus New Furniture
As soon as furniture has been used it looses considerable value. There are a few exception, but in general you can assume that you will only recoup a fraction of the purchasing price.

Quality of Furniture
If you have your old college furniture to sell or you want to offload your used Ikea furniture, do not expect to get a high price for your used furniture pieces. However, if you have a high-quality, well-maintained designer furniture than you can expect to get a reasonable price for your furniture.

Size of Furniture
It is harder to sell large pieces of furniture. Simply put, the larger the piece of furniture the less likely it is to fit in the new owner's apartment. Also larger furniture pieces are more difficult to transport and add to the transportation cost of furniture.

Used Furniture Market Price
Try to gather com parables to find a good price for your furniture. You can look at furniture items sold on eBay to see for what prices they went. Also check out your local furniture consignment stores and to gather comparable prices for your piece of furniture.

Location of Used Furniture
If you live in a large city like New York or Los Angeles you are likely to find a buyer for almost any piece of furniture. However, if you live in a place where there are not many people than you should definitely consider selling your furniture online. You still will need to deal with furniture shipping cost but online you will reach a much larger audience.

Special Collector Furniture Pieces and Antiques
For very valuable pieces you might want to get an appraisal. This will help you get a higher price. Also a certificate of authenticity might be very important for antique collector items. If you still have the original purchase receipt definitely make it part of your sale package.
