What are Appraisals? Do I need one?

We provide valuation services and USPAP compliant appraisal services for assets. Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) can be considered the quality control standards applicable for personal property and business property valuation appraisal analysis and reports in the United States and its territories.

If you need to know what it's worth, whether you need a value for insurance, to settle an estate, or any other reason, we can help. Value is always relative to other factors in determining what an asset is worth. The most important question we ask that leads to value is "why do you want to know what an asset is worth, or for what purpose do you need an appraisal?"

The value for your insurance company to replace items might be very different than the value if you're just thinking about selling the asset and we can help you determine if you really need a certified appraisal for an item you are considering selling. The IRS also has its own requirements and definitions of value and divorce courts have theirs too. 

If you have questions about the appraisal process, or simply want to know what something might be worth, give us a call today at 907.570.7050 or send an email to so we can help you figure out what your assets are worth.
