At Downsizesale, whatever an item fetches at the end of an auction is considered to be an item’s Fair Market Value. In its simplest sense, fair market value is the price that an item would sell for on the open market. Fair Market Value is defined as the price at which the item would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller.
