What is an appraisal?

An appraisal determines the value of an object through market analysis and are often used for insurance purposes (Replacement Value), or estate valuations and donations (Fair Market Value).

In order for an appraisal to be valid we must examine the item(s) in person. We will measure, inspect, and photograph the object for further analysis. Once this information is collected, we will use market research and our network of experts to carefully determine its value. Appraisal fees are either by-the-project or hourly with a two-hour minimum.

You will receive a written appraisal report (that is in compliance with USPAP standards) in a timely manner.

Please contact us to schedule your appraisal.
