Personal Property Appraiser

Accredited Member of the International Society of Appraisers provides USPAP compliant appraisals for estates, equitable distribution, insurance purposes, divorce, IRS charitable donations.

Insurance companies often require an appraisal before providing coverage for fine art and jewelry. An appraisal from an ISA personal property appraiser can provide information to insurance professionals to assist in determining an appropriate coverage amount to ensure that the item is adequately protected against loss, theft, or damage.

ISA Appraisers have specialized knowledge and expertise in assessing the value of fine art, antiques, and jewelry, among other items. They consider factors such as an artist's reputation, rarity of the piece, quality of materials, provenance (history of ownership), and market trends. Their expertise ensures that the valuation is accurate.

Overall, appraisers play a crucial role in providing reliable, objective assessments of the value of these high dollar items, which are essential for various purposes including insurance, estate planning, or buying and selling. Engaging an appraiser may provide peace of mind that these valuable and often irreplaceable possessions could be adequately protected. That is a key reason to reach out to an ISA personal property appraiser.
