Customer Question
Hello, I was wondering if you...
Hello,
I was wondering if you could please appraise an Ackermann Zurich Button Accordion for me please. Not much is know about it except that it seems to work( I don’t play, but it makes music-ish sounds when I play it). I bought it for $140. Seems like a good deal. I can send pictures if you like? But I’m not sure how to do that. Thank you in advance!

Hi,

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.

The Ackermann Zurich Button Accordion has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $***-**-****.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less,at around $600.00-650.00 , If I were selling it I would list it for $ 800.00
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. If you have more items you need values for. Just send to "Glenda Only" I would be happy to help.
