Determining Your Appraisal Requirements:
Some of the most common reasons to obtain an appraisal are:
Non-cash donation to a qualifying charitable organization
Equitable distribution (for estate or divorce)
In addition, clients often seek an appraisal because they wish to know the fair market value of a work of art they have inherited or when they are contemplating a purchase or sale. Fair market value is also employed for donations of works of art. Insurance appraisals require a replacement value.
The client may need organization or inventory of an existing collection, research or documentation, consultation on conservation. In addition, clients may require consultation on the purchase of a work of art or divestment of works of art from an existing collection.
