Thoughts on how much these rugs are worth? And whether they look Persian and hand-knotted wool, as said in post? How old do they look?

Are there any guidelines on $/sqft? if not, assuming these are like 8x10 or 9x12 (another post mentioned these sizes), is there a value range?

The owner lives really close to me so I might go see in person but want to have an idea of value before i contact them...

these look like all hand knotted rugs.The rugs look like large sizes.Possibly Kashan,Tabriz,
retail 9x12 in todays market $2,000 to $3,000
usually persian rugs are priced to dealers by the type and quality of rug,not by kpsi.They all look like new pieces Chrome dyed

These are all used Persian rugs including Kashan, Birjand, Najafabad, Arak, .....and each piece will have its own price ranging from 1200 up to 2500.

Hello
Thanks for answering my posting about craigslist rugs, Jeff and Rugfirm! Rugfirm, I clicked over to your website link from the posting and I have been looking at your collection. I found a bunch of options immediately, and your descriptions are really helpful. Nice that your website singles out which ones are good in high traffic areas.

W/r/t this listing - if we assume are all like 9x12 even though in reality they might be different sizes, how would you price, say, rug 1 vs rug 2? or rug 4 vs rug 5?

Price is a consideration for me and the ranges you guys mentioned are fairly large... My rationale is: if I can get a fair price on CL for a nice rug that is local and I can see before buying, I am happy to do that. However, if the price is more or the same as a similar rug from a reputable dealer online (esp one with a return policy) I would prefer to go that route. Does that make sense? This is the main reason I haven't contacted them yet...
