Whenever there's a question about the value of your personal property, there's also a risk involved.

  • It may be the risk of selling too low, or of paying too much
  • The risk of being under or over insured
  • The risk of not getting your fair share in a division of property
  • The risk of incurring tax penalties or being audited when claiming a deduction for charitable contribution or when calculating estate taxes

A professional appraiser helps you manage these and other such risks by providing a written opinion of value, upon which you can base your financial decisions.

Rather than being just an "educated guess," the professional appraiser's value conclusions are based on prescribed methods of evaluation, research, and report writing.  Bankers, financiers, investors, insurers, adjusters, estate managers, trustees, executors, attorneys, estate managers, trustees, judges, federal and state tax agencies - ALL are dependent upon the knowledge and expertise of appraisers, and so are you. Too often and too late, people find out that the appraisals they have are inaccurate or misleading, resulting not only in greater risk to themselves, but also in an annual waste of millions of consumer dollars.
