Can’t you just give me a guesstimate?
No, any opinion of value by an appraiser is an appraisal. The appraiser’s role is to provide objective, impartial, and unbiased opinions about personal property value. We must perform valuation services competently by attaining enough adequate information to develop a credible appraisal. This includes obtaining all physical and relevant characteristics of the property, condition, and provenance, which may affect a property’s value or marketability.
