Benefits for Sellers

Transparent pricing. Might sell your item for unexpectedly high price?

All the lots are sold to the collectors directly without the intermediate dealers, so the price sold is clear to sellers. It is hard to know the price of your item sold to the next person due to the intermediate dealers, and judging if the price was appropriate is almost impossible. However, at MEGURU auction, sellers can check the price sold, and depending on the bidders, there is a possibility to sell your works with an unexpectedly high price.

Assessment and Pricing

Kashima Arts will make an assessment with the knowledge that cultivated through years of experience, and set an appropriate price in consultation with sellers. The value of the artwork is greatly influenced by market trend, so it is impossible to set the price without professional advice.
