The appraisal process consists of:

Contract/Letter of Agreement

Inspection of the property to be appraised

Research

Property identification (Identify item's relevant market and analyze collected data)

Estimation of Value

Writing the report

Appraisal reports are legal documents. The appraiser has an obligation to provide “due diligence” when appraising an item. The appraiser is also responsible for the contents of the report in a court of law for a minimum of five years, and longer if there is ongoing litigation. An accurate and professional report is worth paying a qualified appraiser - if for no other reason than peace of mind that your valuables are protected, your heirs are provided for, and all requirements are met for the IRS.
