A professional appraiser estimates the value, at a given time, of a particular type of property. These estimations are necessary for purposes such as:
- INSURANCE SCHEDULING
- DAMAGE AND LOSS
- SALE AND PURCHASE
- EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION
- CHARITABLE DONATIONS
- ESTATE AND TAX RETURNS
- PROBATE OF ESTATES
We can meet your specific legal requirements and can provide Expert Witness depositions for all our documents. An appraisal is a written statement, independently and impartially prepared by a qualified appraiser, setting forth an opinion of defined value of an adequately described property, as of a specific date, supported by the presentation and analysis of relevant market information.
PLEASE NOTE: Appraisal fees are not based on commissions or percentages of items valued, the intended use of the appraisal or the financial outcome from its use.
