Our accredited appraiser of antiques and personal property evaluates items for estate sales and other purposes, and is certified through CAGA. Clients involved with estate planning and settlement often need assistance with one of the following:
Estate and Charitable Donation Appraisals Conforming to IRS Requirements
The IRS now requires that a competent, professional appraiser creates such appraisals in compliance with their definition of fair market value. Our appraisals certify compliance with these directives, giving you peace of mind that decisions made in the division or donation of estate property are equitable and that your filings will be accepted as valid. All our estate and donation appraisals certify compliance with USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice)
Insurance Appraisals Protecting the Full Value of Your Prized Possessions
If you had to file an insurance claim today, would you be fairly compensated for the loss of your valuables? An insurance appraisal compliant with USPAP is your protection in the event of loss. Our appraisals certify that the replacement values and sales comparisons used to value your items use the correct market analysis for insurance settlement, giving your insurer what they need to quickly and fairly compensate you in case you ever have to make a claim. Our insurance appraisals conform to USPAP's Uniform Standards.
Valuation Appraisals of Your Heirlooms for Curiosity or Resale Purposes
Family treasures and hand-me-downs may prove more valuable than you would expect. Our verbal value approximation service gives you information and current retail value estimates, information you can pass on to your family and heirs--or use to effectively market your items to potential buyers.
We conduct estate sales and appraisals in Seattle, Bellevue and King County; Everett and Snohomish County; Tacoma and Pierce County; Bremerton and Kitsap County; Olympia and Thurston County; and Mason, Lewis, Skagit and Whatcom Counties in Washington State and points beyond.
