Goldfinch Appraisals & Antiques offers its professional personal property appraisal services for a variety of purposes, for people curious about the worth of a single object to families seeking the value of an entire estate for legal purposes.

Having a professionally prepared, formal appraisal has many benefits, chief among them the establishment of a defined value.  A standard appraisal authenticates the existence, condition and value of each item. It includes:

  • A cover document describing the type of value being offered and how the appraisal is to be used (ie. insurance, estate, donations, etc).
  • The methodology and resources the appraiser has relied upon, including market analysis.
  • A complete and accurate description of the property.  
  • The date and location of inspection, and the effective date of value.
  • A statement by the appraiser that he or she has no financial interest in the property or that such interest is disclosed in the report.
  • The appraiser's qualifications and signature.

Goldfinch Appraisals & Antiques employs the "Getty ID," a universally recognized standard of describing art and antiques. It prescribes the inclusion of information such as the type of object, materials used, distinguishing features, and the date and/or era of each piece being appraised.

Clients and colleagues of Goldfinch Appraisals & Antiques include private individuals, attorneys, probate officials, trust departments, interior designers, auction house representatives, art dealers and specialty appraisers.
