The Process

An appraisal is an unbiased opinion of the value of an identified property as of a specific date. It begins with a consultation, usually by telephone to understand the client’s intended use of the report. The use of the appraisal report determines the appropriate value being sought.

After physical inspection and evaluation of the property, appropriate markets are researched. The document is then prepared containing a thorough inventory of the property, complete with photographs, which describes the value conclusions drawn from the market analysis.

Personal property appraisals are conducted for the estate tax, probate, insurance purposes, equitable distribution, charitable contributions, marital and business dissolutions, lease buy-outs, cost allocation, resale, and liquidation.

A client must employ an appraiser who understands the appropriate approaches to value, as well as the potential consequences if the appraisal is conducted incorrectly; ie, under-insuring or overpayment of premiums; excessive tax payment or penalties; interest charges; legal and accounting fees or other costly repercussions.
