THE APPRAISAL PROCESS:
Once engaged, we arrange an inspection of your items, either at your location (Orange, Los Angeles, San Diego counties and out-of-state) or at our offices. During our inspection, we carefully photograph your property and record its origin such as date, artist or manufacturer; and physical characteristics including size, condition, marks, etc. Additionally, we assess quality and other important characteristics of value.
We also review any relevant documentation you may have, such as receipts, invoices or old appraisals. Documentation may provide a previous context of worth in the marketplace and enhance the value of your property.
Returning to our Corona del Mar/Newport Beach office, we then conduct value research and write the report.
