WorthPoint Corporation is the largest resource for researching, valuing and buying/selling antiques, art and vintage collectibles. Our suite of offerings consists of WorthPoint.com, an online resource for researching and valuing antiques, art and collectibles; MarksandLibrary.com, an online resource for investigating makers’ marks as well as accessing a library of virtual books from leading publishers on a wide range of collecting topics; and GoAntiques.com, the oldest, most established marketplace for buying and selling antiques, art and vintage collectibles.
At WorthPoint, which is our primary offering, we empower the antique and collectible industry by providing a steady stream of new data and quality information – helping improve the pricing transparency that exists between sellers and buyers. Just as eBay created the market for more efficient trading, WorthPoint’s collection and presentation of historical pricing data is helping sellers realize better prices and buyers gain comfort that the price they are paying is fair. WorthPoint is also accessible via iPhone or iPad “in the field”.
We offer both a do-it-yourself (DIY) model as well as access to a network of professionals (appraisers) with expertise in numerous collecting verticals who can provide a more detailed valuation. The DIY model is a comprehensive solution that gives a user access to over 130 million historical prices and images. This data is aggregated from both online marketplaces and from some of the leading auction houses. We have the largest database that covers up to 8 years of information – some of which is gone forever.
Should someone want more in-depth analysis, we provide access to a large network of “Worthologists” that will deliver a valuation to them. In August 2010, the WSJ ran a blind shopping test of several online sites and WorthPoint was the only one to receive a perfect score.
Every second, three people conduct searches on WorthPoint to value their collectibles. Whether they find antique glassware in their parents’ attic or decide to monetize a few items during the slow economy, they have one thing in common: WorthPoint helps them discover their hidden wealth. Join us.
