Where is Dynasty Located?

Do you have a set value you assign for certain items?

Dynasty looks at every item individually. We assess the item and assign a loan value based on key factors about the item; such as the market value and condition.

What is the difference between buying and getting a pawn loan?

Buy:

When we buy or purchase an item, you simply sell the item to us for immediate cash money.

Pawn Loan:

When you take out a loan at Dynasty, we secure your items until you pay back the loan. Loan terms are 30 days – you can pick up the loan anytime within the 30 days by paying the principle + the interest of the money borrowed – OR – You can simply pay the interest to extend the loan term another 30 days.

My item has already been appraised – will I get the same value when I sell or get a loan?

The short answer is no, but we invite you to bring in your appraisal for useful information. Now the long answer: generally speaking, most appraisals are written for insurance purpose replacement value. This is often a full retail, inflated value that is way above the current resale value. We appraise items based on current market previously owned value and recent sales of similar items.

Do I need an appointment?

Absolutely not! We do suggest calling in advance in case you have something we may not typically purchase, or a rare find, or something that may need additional research or specialists. But for most circumstances, walk-ins are always welcome!

Does Dynasty charge for appraising my items when buying or loaning?

There is no obligation to sell or get a loan on your items. We simply give you a value we feel comfortable buying or loaning, and it is up to you to accept the offer!

If you want a written appraisal for your jewelry for insurance purposes, we do charge a very low, competitive price!
