As I shared with our readers, I recently moved to a new home (during the pandemic!). My new space is much larger, which means I have a lot of furnishing to do. And, some of the furniture I already have is just not going to work. One resource I am looking to is one of the TTR Sotheby’s White Glove resources, Sotheby’s Home.
Sotheby’s Home is the exclusive platform for buying and selling pre-owned home décor and antique furniture. For the design aficionado looking for a great deal, there is no better spot than Sotheby’s Home to find that perfect piece. Sotheby’s Home carries over two thousand sought-after brands in the following categories: furniture, art, rugs, lighting, accessories, jewelry, antiques, and vintage. These pieces are sold by consignment and are new, nearly new, or vintage/antique. Some come from showroom floors, others come from private collections, and some come from designer consigners. While each item has a list price on the Sotheby’s Home website, there is the opportunity to negotiate. Just make an offer!
To start shopping, click here. There are two options “Buy Now” or “Make an Offer.” When you click “Buy Now” and follow the prompts, you agree to buy at the list price. When you click “Make an Offer,” you will be prompted to enter your offer and it will be shared with the seller for consideration. You will receive email updates as to the status of your offer. Now is a good time to check it out as Sotheby’s Home is offering 20 percent off site-wide with code LIMITED20 (some exclusions apply).
On the flip side, for those with something to sell, Sotheby’s Home provides the perfect platform to give maximum exposure to your item(s). The Sotheby’s Home team will manage the entire process from consultation to advertising and answering customer questions, taking offers on your behalf, and arranging delivery to the buyer. There are no hidden charges for these services, and no fee to list with Sotheby’s Home. When (and only if) the property sells, Sotheby’s Home takes a percentage of the sales price as commission for the sale. Details can be found here.
To sell on Sotheby’s Home, just submit your items through the seller portal for review. If the property is approved for listing, one of Sotheby’s Home’s experts will professionally catalog and price the item(s) and send the listing to you for your review and approval. The listing will stay on the Sotheby’s Home site for one year to give it a full opportunity to sell.
Happy buying and selling!
