    Visual Pricing Guide Explained using Six Lots from the upcoming Matthew Bennett Auction by Tom Droege, (full article), (video), (catalog)

    In this 2nd video introducing the Visual Pricing Guide, we take six lots from the upcoming Matthew Bennett Auction to pull it all together. The video shows how 20 years of pricing can be used to verify and expand the information provided by the auction firms. An added histogram takes the same data and presents it by year.

    Our Visual Pricing Guide is not as detailed as Provenance or Census, but for $50 a year it takes Get Market Data to the next level. It uses a percentile approach to present the data so the trends are obvious. If after watching the video, you want to test drive it for 45 days -- email me and I will sign you up for a demo. But the video should convince you to go ahead and do the $49.95 / year BASIC Extended features without a trial period.
