Find two pawn shop price guides at Pawn Nerd and The Houston Chronicle. Whereas the guide at The Houston Chronicle focuses on how a pawn shop determines the value of an item, the guide at Pawn Nerd focuses on the actual prices of several item categories.
Pawn shops take the condition of the item, the circumstances of the seller and expert opinion into consideration when determining the value of an item. Depending on the age, condition and storage capacity, an iPod may sell for between $20 and $80, as of 2015. Making sure everything works properly and bringing accessories bring up the value of an electronic item.
