New York, NY (WiredPRNews.com). If you want to get the best price possible when you sell your gold in Astoria NY, don’t be in a rush. People who charge out and sell their valuables at the first place they go to will often receive a much lower price. You should definitely take your time when you sell your gold.
Don’t just go to the first place you see that has a sign that says we buy gold. Anybody can put such a sign up and say that they are a buyer. In many cases the places with the biggest and flashiest signs will actually pay the lowest price. They may, for example, offer only one low price for all gold and not pay more for higher karat gold which contains more of the precious metal.
Also many buyers will only touch high-karat items they may not pay you for lower karat items or items that they have a tough time appraising. Therefore you should find a professional gold buyer. Go to a family owned company that specializes in buying. Such companies are around especially in the New York Tri-State area.
When you go in don’t take the first offer that you get. If the offer seems low be willing to take the items to another buyer. Assessment by gold buyers is free and you are under no obligation to sell. If you don’t like the price you don’t have to sell.
Be willing to shop around, go to a number of different buyers and do some research. Reputable buyers will pay more and they will often take items that other buyers will not. Some buyers may not touch items like chains or broken jewelry, others will not purchase lower karat gold.
So do some research and find those firms that specialize in gold buying. The more reputable they are the better. Something else to remember is that reputable buyers could be willing to come to you. Some buyers will actually come to your home or your safety deposit box to examine your items. They will be willing to pay you cash or a check for your items at your place.
Be especially careful when selling jewelry, some buyers will try to lowball you by offering small amounts. Others may try to prey on your desperation. Take your time when selling gold and don’t get in a hurry. Don’t try to sell it at the last minute or when you are desperate for cash. Wait until you have the funds to do so.
If you are in a financial jam, pawn your gold because pawnbrokers will give you a loan worth 60% of the item’s value. You will then have to pay the loan off with some interest. That way you can take your time and sell it right later on.
