Our professionals tour your property on-site providing an opportunity to physically catalog and inspect your inventory or items in your collection. This hands-on process provides the utmost opportunity for the appraiser to gather the necessary information to properly identify the relevant characteristics of the personal property.
A desktop appraisal (also referred to as an online appraisal) is an opinion of the appropriately defined value type expressed in terms of dollars in which the opinion is generated from an inventory list, photographs, and other informational materials supplied to the appraiser. In desktop appraisals, the subject property is evaluated and appraised without the benefit of an on-site inspection. A desktop opinion can be used for some situations but is not appropriate for many appraisal needs where an on-site inspection is required.
We offer inventory and inspection services to clients who need property identified but not valuated, including:

All relevant information is summarized in the report to the degree required by the intended use of the report and the needs of the client and any other intended users, if any. For a personal property appraisal, this report is prepared in accordance with USPAP Standards Rule 8-2(a).
A Restricted Appraisal Report can be provided when the intended users do not include parties other than the client. The appraiser need only state the relevant information with the details maintained in the assignment client workfile. For a personal property appraisal, this report option is prepared in accordance with USPAP Standards Rule 8-2(b).

This service is ideal for clients who do not require a written report and only wish to obtain a quick “Ball Park Value” of their personal assets. It is also a type of appraisal report option for organizations hosting an “Antique Roadshow” type of event.
