To buy successfully
Article of
Odalys Sánchez de Saravo

The auctions are the ideal forum for the buy of the most diverse goods, by what nowadays they can be acquired across this method from a house, up to a company in movement, happening for machineries, horses, works of art and up to the articles about common use in our hearths.

This situation is not accidental, since in the capitalist economy that reigns in almost Western the whole world, the just price is reached in an open and free forum where without any type of pressure they converge a universe of buyers and sellers on search of the exchange of the most diverse products.

Undoubtedly, to who he has never bought in auction can assault some doubts and fears as for the scopes, and functioning of this method, and can feel some mistrust, therefore next we present to them some information that will make us shine like understood at the moment of the buy in an auction and will allow us to do a better acquisition.

We will realize the analysis across an art auction, although the procedure is equivalent for any other type of objects.


- I spend 1:
Check scrupulously the catalog of the auction
This is fundamental, in the catalog it is in addition to the conditions of sale that the Auctioneer establishes, sufficient information as to do a previous selection. This first selection must have a reasonable flexibility margin, and it will face in the visit forced to the place of exhibition of the objects to auction it appropriately. To read the whole catalog is the most advisable thing since normally there is very important information in the tiniest letters.

- I spend 2:
Visit the exhibition of the objects that they go to auction
This is the most important aspect since it is the moment in which the theoretical selection that you have realized product of the study of the catalog was consolidated or was changing. Try to concentrate on the chosen pieces, check them carefully, find out his origin and history and quite the auctioneer could offer all the information to him, do not hesitate to request it, a good seller will give him everything the one that needs. This information will feed him on accurate elements for the capture of the decision of buy.

- I spend 3:
Check the tags, frames, frames
It sounds elementary, but often we find a lot of information of the works of art in the analysis of the later part of the work. If the work has certain antiquity time, on having observed the old age of the cloth, the oxidation of the nails that hold it to the frame, the state of the frame (antiquity of the wood), you label that they indicate some element of the history of the piece or of the frame, we can obtain valuable information that allows the reconstruction of the history of the piece, in addition to being something really pleasant because it allows us re-discovering the secrets that the work lodges.

- I spend 4:
Check the catalog again

As soon as the exhibition was visited his criterion must have matured. It will be already in aptitude to decide about his preferences, and will consider the elements that it could have collected. If he is present often at the auctions it already will have an accurate prices reference, but, it is the moment to quarrel across results of previous auctions or of visits to galleries. Now note down in his catalog the price that according to his opinion costs every piece of his interest, also the price notes down that you would be ready to pay for c/u. We are ready to go to the Auction!.


- I spend 5:
Try to fit at the prearranged prices
Come early, check again his pieces, make sure of what he is interested in and bid up to the prearranged quantity, try to fit in the possible thing to this quantity since during the auction it is possible that for the emotion and the rapidity it is possible to fall down in the temptation of paying more of the foreseen for a work.

In any auction the protagonist is the public, therefore he is not afraid to act with the biggest naturalness, feel comfortable, without pressure, enjoy the event and share with his relatives and friends this gratifying experience of acquiring the best piece (the one that you like) at the best price (the one that you also like).
