Types of Appraisals


ESTATE APPRAISALS –

We compile a full detailed report of all of the personal property including all household contents, jewelry, collectibles, antiques, art, coins, and miscellaneous items.

This way all of the heirs can either buy an item from the estate, once the value of each item has been determined, or they can distribute the items amicably so that there are no arguments during the already sensitive time.

Are you donating a horse worth $5,000 or more? If so, you need a qualified appraiser! “taxpayers are required to obtain a qualified appraisal for donated property for which a deduction of more than $5,000 is claimed.”

A horse’s value is a combination of several qualities, including (but not limited to) its history and performance records, bloodlines, conformation, eye appeal, health and soundness, disposition, level of training, etc.

Typically, the most predominant factor regarding a horse’s value is how good he is at his/her “job.” For instance, if you have a trail horse, its disposition will have an incredible impact on its value. On the other hand, if you have an experienced show horse, its show records will be the primary basis of its value.
