With the world wide web you can easily get market value out of about anything. Your selling to the whole world, but around here your just selling to people in an area where about 1/3 of people live under the poverty line.Gary Sexton is who I would have do an auction.

I have been to several different sales with other auctioneers and the crowds arent there and I can buy stuff cheaper, not what you want when your the seller.
To living rich n flying high ; Their running a business ,not a grief counseling service.You'll not make half what any auctioneer can do for you, by doing it yourself.
But is usually does take time. I mean if your about to go bankrupt or have an immediate death or something and need quick cash I can see where your coming from.
