Fair Market Value Services

The fair market value is the price the art would sell for on the open market. It is the price that would be agreed on between a willing buyer and a willing seller, with neither being required to act, and both having a reasonable knowledge of the work being offered.

Replacement Value Services

Replacement Value is the price it would cost to replace an item with one of similar quality purchased in the most appropriate marketplace within a limited amount of time.

Equitable Distribution Services

Dividing marital property as a result of a divorce is equitable distribution. Instead of a strict fifty-fifty split (in which each spouse receives exactly one-half of the marital or separate property), equitable distribution focuses on the financial situation that each spouse will be in after the divorce.

Charitable Donations Services

If you're thinking of making a charitable donation of your art and want to receive a tax credit, you will need an IRS qualified appraisal.

Loss of Value after damage or restoration Services

Loss in value is the reduction of worth resulting from damage and any subsequent restoration.
