Question by Aster: How to buy Oriential and Persian rugs. How long does it take for a rug to appreciate in value? Which ones will
What questions should a person ask before purchasing an expensive rug?
Wanted to add: I wouldn’t buy a rug as an investment. I just thought someone browsing this category may know something about how rugs appreciate in value. I may be wrong.

Best answer:

Answer by The Guru
Don’t buy the rug as an investment. Buy it because you like the rug.
Investing in “collectibles”, in my opinion, is not very wise. Investing in coins, stamps, baseball cards ad infinitum, is not a way to get rich slowly. Invest in these things only if you like them and want to collect them, not as an investment.
