Many people have stuff that is packed away in china cabinets, buried deep in drawers, or displayed that will never be used. Sometimes this may include the many silverware pieces that have been gifted to us over the years. While many of these heirloom pieces have sentimental value, other pieces are just taking up space, collecting dust and tarnishing. These items can be converted to cash through the services of a Silver Buyer Lincoln Park.
When deciding to sell your silver, first go through and remove the pieces that have sentimental value to you. While they may have value to a silver buyer, it is not worth selling them if you are going to have regrets later. It is easy to sell sets that are missing pieces or duplicate items. For other pieces, you need to ask yourself if you will ever use them, or do you have an attachment to them? If the answer is no, it makes them much easier to part with.
Gold and silver buying parties are all the rage in some areas. There are pros and cons of selling your items in a location such as this. You may receive a slightly better price from the buyer at these parties, but do you really want to sell your items surrounded by family and friends? Online auctions such as Ebay and other sites can be another valuable vehicle, but who has the time and energy to set up an online auction just to wait to see if someone bids on your property? If you choose to go this route, ensure that you are setting a reserve bid price which will ensure that your items sell higher than a dollar.
When using a Silver Buyer, you are usually paid by the ounce. Some rare or antique pieces may be purchased separately and be assigned more value. This process is quick and simple since most Silver Buyers are buying the silver to have it melted down. They will be willing to give you a price, and pay you immediately. Why wait for your money if you do not have to?
