We can get it done for you. We offer written appraisals FOR:

  • *Estate Settlement: Fair Market Value
  • *Equitable Distributions: Fair Market Value
  • Insurance: Replacement Value
  • *Pre-sale Estimates: Fair Market Value
  • *Charitable Gifts: Fair Market Value, If over $5,000 in total a Section B of Form 8283 must accompany the appraisal. 

Fair market value is generally the price at which property would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller, neither having to buy or sell, and both having reasonable knowledge of all the relevant facts.

Verbal Appraisals (It might be all you need)

Written appraisals are always needed for settling estates, charitable gifting, and insurance riders. However, in many cases, a more informal verbal appraisal can often be sufficient and cost a whole lot less depending the amount time needed. Verbal appraisals are particularly useful and less time-consuming when owners are contemplating a sale of one or multiple items. 

Verbal appraisals by us are of course done at not charge in cases where we will be handling a sale(s) of items on your behalf.
