There’s no question that buying or selling unique vintage art and antiques can be a process. In addition to the prices of more valuable pieces, there are also other concerns like damage done to the product or its authenticity. For this reason, it may be wise to hire a personal property appraiser.
A personal property appraiser will be fully informed of the issues facing today’s antique market. As such, the appraiser can determine the value, giving you a personal property appraisal that will help you to make a reasonable decision in pricing for the product.
An appraisal is an unbiased estimate of what a buyer might expect to pay for an antique, where both buyer and seller are "informed parties". To be an informed party, most people turn to a licensed, professional appraiser to provide the most accurate estimate of the value of their property.
An appraisal begins with the study of the personal property in question. An appraiser's duty is to inspect the item in question to determine the true status of that property. The appraiser must actually view and study its features, such as the material used to create it, rarity, or its usability, to ensure that the personal property is in reasonable condition for the market. The study ensures that personal property is priced properly for purchase or sale, and looks for any obvious features or defects that would affect the final value.
Once the personal property has been inspected, an appraiser uses two or three approaches to determine the value of the antique.
