Examination: The appraiser examines all the property to be included in the final report, noting and evaluating characteristics, conditions, and measurements of most items.

Photographs: Digital images are taken to document the item’s existence and aid in research. These photographs are included in the final report.

Research: Each item is studied and researched to determine its value based upon comparable sales and histories. Research time may include identification of marks, labels, dates, and locations; analysis of comparable items; market research; and expert consultation.

Reporting: The final report from A-Z Appraisal & Estate Consultants consists of a bound copy of the completed appraisal along with the appraiser’s qualifications, purpose, and basis of appraisal. The report includes the inventory, market research, valuation, and necessary comments pertinent to the property. Each item or group of items has a description, age (if appropriate), measurements, condition, value, and photograph. All A-Z Appraisal reports are compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
