NBA Season Ticket Resale

Try our strategies for selling National Basketball Association tickets and make every sale a slam dunk!

When can I sell my NBA tickets with TiqAssist?

We give you the opportunity to start selling your unwanted tickets as soon as you secure your season package and the NBA ticket resale marketplaces activate your specific games. Typically, this happens within hours of the season schedule announcement. If you already know your exact seats for the upcoming season, you can start listing before your tickets appear in your account. Otherwise, it’s best to wait until after your exact seat locations are finalized.

When is the best time to sell my tickets?

Posting your tickets as soon as possible is the best idea for a number of reasons. First and foremost, early buyers tend to pay more. This is because these are the buyers with the highest level of demand. Die-hard fans who want to secure marquee games will be jumping on them as soon as possible. The other thing to consider is that the longer you wait, the more competition there will be as other ticketholders start to put their seats up on the marketplaces.

If you can’t list your tickets right at the time of the schedule release, you should try to have them listed at least several weeks before the start of the season. This is normally when general fan excitement is at its highest point, and you’ll be able to price your tickets higher than otherwise. Plus, it’s worth noting that there won’t be any significant player injuries that can affect demand.

How does TiqAssist price my tickets? 

Our approach involves using technology that prices your tickets based on the most current, up-to-the-minute data. We look at what comparable tickets are selling for, as well as your seats’ location, strength of the visiting team and more.

The ticketing technology we use ensures your prices stay competitive but also provide you with the highest possible return. On average, users earn 10% to 15% more when they sell their basketball tickets through us than they would if they attempted to do so themselves. This is why we’re the best place to sell NBA tickets.
