Fees for Appraisals

Each report has unique qualities and complexity of research and methodology depending on intended use. An estimate will be provided upon learning details of the nature of the report, number of items to be appraised and the amount of information provided. Please contact us for an accurate estimate for a report to meet your specific needs.


Once all information is provided a flat fixed bid will be presented to the client. If the client prefers an hourly rate charge, the appraiser will provide information on hourly rates depending on your needs.
