WHAT IS APPRAISING?
The art and science of estimating the value, at any given time, of any sort of property is called "appraising." Appraising also involves cost estimation and the forecasting of monetary earning power.
NEED AN APPRAISAL?
It can be a key to protecting your interests in many financial dealings. When there is a question as to the value of your property, there's also a risk involved.
Value oriented risks may include:
• selling to low
• paying to much
• being over or under insured
• not getting your fair share in a division of property
• paying to much in taxes
• being audited when claiming a deduction for a charitable contribution or a business loss
A professional appraiser helps you manage your interests by providing a well developed and documented, unbiased, estimate of value upon which you can base your financial decisions.
