Not really. Real auction houses do a lot of work staging and photographing as well as
researching items to present them and get them in front of the right audience to maximize
the sale price.
I just returned home with a large item (required a 10-foot UHaul) that I won at auction
through Prop Store (70s through present ?genre? movies and TV props, costumes, etc.). They
do a 25% buyers premium. Between the catalog photography, the livestream bidding process,
the research on the history on the item, and the assistance provided to get it on the
truck, I think they earned their premium fee.
