Case Study One - Mr & Mrs D. wanted assistance in valuing the eclectic collection of items their son had amassed and had been placed into storage after his early and untimely death. With items ranging from 1950's kitsch to modern art prints etc, a home visit proved that he had a very good eye and, using a local auction house, over £700 was taken before auction costs for most of the items. Amongst the items, however, was a limited edition Banksy print from the first run of only 250 examples. Acting as an Auction Agent for the clients, this item was presented to a London Auction house who have estimated the print to be worth in excess of £15,000. Stevens Auctioneers were able to negotiate a 6% reduction in the seller's commission fee and the print sold for £20,000!
The actual worth of value of items in the house can surprise you.
