Types of Valuations

Each appraisal is unique and tailored to solve our client’s appraisal needs. Our reports include digital colour photograph(s), precious metal identification, gross weight(s), carat weight(s), measurements, and a property description narrative ranging from simple to extremely detailed depending on the requirements of the client and the type of reporting needed.
To conserve the environment we have converted our reports to a digital pdf format so they can be transmitted to our clients more efficiently and effectively. For clients this means easier sharing with multiple users. Clients have a digital record for storage and future reference. An electronic report cuts down on paper waste and makes storage convenient for our clients.
For those clients who prefer a hard copy, one can be made available upon request. Our extensive education, research, and experience are the important back bones of a report written with a value definition that is justifiable and defensible. All appraisals are written to the International Society of Appraisers Report Writing Standards (ARWS). Your appraisal is written in compliance with the most current edition of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
