Featured Glossary Term

Pricing As part of a sales transaction, both the buyer and seller need to appraise the value of a collectible. The buyer may assign a fixed price or the price may be negotiated. Pricing should be based upon sales of comparable artifacts and a sense of market demand. Some collectibles are price insensitive to wide differences in the condition of an artifact whereas other collectibles are highly price sensitive depending upon condition. An appraisal can assist in establishing a "fair" price for an artifact. Price is a function of both the objective and subjective value of an artifact to both the buyer and the seller.
