We will appraise anything except real estate.
We are not experts in every field, but do have an in depth ability for related research and utilize a large reference library. Appraisals are placed into three general classifications, or value “tiers”:
• Replacement value – actual cost to replace a given item;
• Fair market – used by IRS for charity donations; legal proceedings, i.e., probate and dissolutions;
• Liquidation – for immediate, “everything must go” sales, often court ordered, or – time constrained, such as a probated estate sale or estate down sizing. We are qualified in making valuations in all above instances.
Our fees are reasonable: $95 per hour, plus travel time, with a minimum one hour on site. Half time ($47.50 per hour) for report preparation/research
