For bag lovers, making the decision to part ways with one of our beloved bags is no easy feat. And while there are many factors that go into the decision behind selling a bag (including lack of use or in need of the extra cash), the deciding factor usually lies with getting a decent return. We've heard from readers and forum members that they are currently looking to part with bags due to the economic climate. In order to make things easier, we combed information in the resale market to create a handy guide which will help you get an idea of what price your pre-loved bags may fetch.
Today, we're focusing on some of the most popular Louis Vuitton styles. Here, we've taken prices for each style from some of the biggest resale sites, which will give you an idea of your bag's current value. At the bottom, I included notes about each resale site which may help you decide which to use. To be clear, all prices are in USD and represent the current range of selling prices, NOT what each reseller is offering for the style. Included with each style, you'll find the average median price across all resale sites.

Rebag: Only offers buyouts and unfortunately the rates aren't the best, but if you need money fast, they are a great option. Transactions are often easy and straight forward with options to sell in store. If you aren't looking for cash, but are looking to fund another bag, check to see if they have the bag you want, as their store credit system is actually very competitive.
Fashionphile: Consistent across the board with a large audience and a good selection. They offer buyouts as well as consignment and their rates are fair. They are one of my go to resale sites.
The RealReal: Very inconsistent! Pricing and condition differ dramatically. They may be an option if you're looking for a quick sale as they have a huge audience, but they only offer consignment. Be cautious about what you send to them as well, as I have had several bad experiences with them personally. One thing to note: they markdown pieces without letting you know, so you may end up with less than you originally planned.
Yoogi's Closet: Very selective about what pieces they take, but they seem to have one of the best payouts for outright purchase. As it's a smaller reseller, if you're planning to sell on consignment, it might take a little longer as the audience is smaller.
