How I Approach Buying Your Collection
I know that many of my competitors say that they will pay the most or collectors will state that you should sell to them because they will pay you more.
I have been involved in many deals over the years. When offered collections or individual books I rarely get accused of being the lowest bidder. I have plenty of experience to draw upon when determining what to pay for books. Past sales as well as current demand are part of the equation. Condition and the age of the books are another. However don't get the impression that I'm only interested in high grade only. I would definitely be interested in purchasing a low grade collection of Superhero Golden Age or Pre-Code Horror.
I have the financial ability to purchase your collection and I pay a very high percentage of my retail which in most cases is higher than 50% Overstreet price guide. Naturally there are some books that I will pay more for, some less.
Whether you are selling a few books or a entire collection I guarantee that my offer will be a fair one. I will be very frank and honest with you in the assessment of your collection's value.
I pay very generously for CGC graded books, however I will not pay you what the book sold for on Ebay last week.
I truly understand the emotional attachment involved with selling high grade material. Before selling your books give me a call. You can be assured that I will give your books a good home.
I am very serious about buying books, if you want an appraisal I charge $100/hour. My knowledge of this business is valuable, isn't yours?
$$$ - Finder's Fee's - $$$
I will gladly pay a finder's fee up to 10% on the finalized purchase price on leads that result in me buying a collection. You are paid right after I close the deal, not before/not 6 months later.
