In accordance with professional ethics, our fees are based upon time and expenses incurred, never on a percentage of the value of the items appraised. No two assignments are alike. Your appraisal fee will depend on factors such as the number of objects indicated for appraisal and the availability of background information, such as purchase receipts or previous appraisals, which may save considerable time.
Our minimum fee for a written appraisal report is $1,500.00.
Typically, we do not recommend an appraisal for an item intended to be sold, as it is generally not cost effective. For more information, see the FAQ section of this website, located under “The Appraisal Profession/FAQ.”
