Your grandfather’s Native-American beaded saddlebag or your childhood baseball card collection may help fund your child’s education or your retirement condo. There are many reasons you might need to have your personal property, collections, or even an entire household appraised:
- Before a potential sale
- Insurance purposes
- Settlement of an estate
- Donation purposes
We rely on research, expertise and experience to arrive at a trusted, credible opinion of object value.
How does it work?
- Free consultation
Judy is happy to first provide a free initial evaluation of your needs, visiting in person to view items and answer questions about our process. After you’ve met, she’ll provide a pricing estimate of hours required to complete your property appraisal.
- Determine what type of valuation you need
Judy and her team will work together with you to establish a value definition for your appraisal. For example, the replacement value of an item for insurance could be different than the current fair-market value of an item.
- Our research process
Supported by our experience and expertise, we carefully evaluate each item based on quality, condition, rarity, desirability, and provenance. We’ll often compare data from past sales of similar objects. For super-rare items, we’ll consult experts in various fields.
- Delivering your appraisal
Your final property appraisal will delivered as a professional document with detailed descriptions, photos, and pricing values for each item. The result is a thoughtful, credible, and unbiased opinion of value.
