Gold buyers are everywhere! When you are ready to sell your gold, it’s important to investigate your options to ensure you get paid the price you deserve. In-person buyers (like pawnshops or kiosks at the mall) are convenient, but they have added overhead and margins which often eat away at your payment.
With gold prices today nearing all-time highs, it’s a great time to cash in on old, broken, or unwanted gold jewelry. Even small amounts of gold can bring in welcome cash, so it’s not doing you any good gathering dust in the back of your closet! But how can you make sure that you’re getting the best deal? Just remember these “Three Rs” of how to sell gold:

There are many security solutions out there, and which storage option you choose will depend upon both on the size and value of your precious metals collection, as well as how quickly and easily you may need to access it. Many experts suggest diversifying your storage methods and locations for optimum security in the case of unexpected events.

Gold-buying kiosks are springing up in malls and shopping centers across the country, and there are countless websites claiming to give the very best price for your precious metals. The question is, how do you choose?
