What is "Real Market Data"?
Wouldn't it be great if you could determine what price constitutes a "fair
deal" before you made a deal? We think so. That's why we've created iGuide's
Real Market Data (RMD) pricing, our proprietary system that does the research for
you. It's a guide that gives you updated information on what you should pay for
an item or what you should expect to receive — without having to spend hours researching.
iGuide's Real Market Data pricing system is the internet's best guide to market
value pricing and the only pricing system designed with the consumer in mind. Our
exclusive RMD pricing is based on real sales data, gathered from auction sites in
near real-time. This ensures you get the most accurate pricing available, as quickly
