As a Graduate Personal Property Appraiser (GPPA & USPAP) I offer written appraisals.
As an Estate Specialist with an experienced team, we offer estate valuations...Which do you need?
It's a good question! It all depends on the purpose. Meaning, what is your intended purpose for the answer you will receive? If your goal is for an insurance or IRS document, then yes, you do need an appraisal! We offer this service and hold the credentials necessary as Graduate Personal Property Appraisers.
But, if your intent is to sell the items, then you are more than likely looking for a valuation. You simply want an educated guess as to how much your particular assets will bring on the open market today, in either a sale or an auction. We offer this service too! Why pay for a written appraisal when you are just going to sell the items, right?!
We appraise most personal property. If it not our area of expertise and we are not comfortable providing a written appraisal of your items, we will reach out to experts in that particular area that we know across the United States and abroad. As active members in the National Auctioneers Association, we have experts at the other end of the phone in just moments whether personal assets or commercial.
