If you are a homeowner, you will want to check your homeowner’s insurance policy in order to identify what coverage limits exist on your valuables. There is a good chance that a separate policy schedule will be needed to cover certain items of value. If your fine arts, antiques, or collectibles are not insured, you may be at risk of losing these items without receiving compensation. Consult your insurance agent to determine if you need a personal property appraisal.
Mid-Atlantic Appraisals, Claims and Estate Liquidations, LLC will help to establish the value of a personal property item that is the subject of an insurance damage claim. We are experienced in providing replacement cost estimates for antiques, fine art and general residential contents that have been damaged or destroyed by natural disaster, fire or theft. We have assisted policy holders, insurance companies and professional carriers in their efforts to resolve unsettled claims. If your items need repair or restoration, we can also provide referrals to professional and licensed art conservators and restoration experts in your area.
When claiming a tax deduction on charitable contributions of fine art, decorative arts, antiques, and other objects of value, the IRS requires that the donor obtain an appraisal by a qualified appraiser when the fair market value of individual items or group of similar items donated is more than $5,000. Mid-Atlantic Appraisals, Claims and Estate Liquidations, LLC performs donation appraisals in conformity with IRS requirements.

Divorces can be a tumultuous life experience, but a personal property appraiser is indispensable for an equitable division of marital assets. Have your attorney or accountant contact us to discuss the terms for appraising martial assets.
With the advent of technology, an on-site inspection is not always necessary for some types of properties. Some appraisal assignments can be conducted using digital photographs and client- or third-party provided information. Some types of personal property and antiques are appropriate for distance appraisals in this manner. However, only some appraisal problems or intended uses are appropriate for distance appraisals. Please contact or email our office to discuss the acceptable intended uses for online appraisals or Sales Advisory appraisals.
A phone consultation with our staff can determine whether or not a distance appraisal would be appropriate, depending on its intended use. Online Appraisals with supporting documentation are billed at $50.00. Email your request and photographs today.
Rates and Fee's customized for each Client based on the assignment.
Appraisal fees for on-site time including inspections, consultations and meetings are $125 per hour, with a 2-hour minimum. Research, documentation and other administrative time is charged at $100 per hour. Typically, there is an average of 2 hours of research and documentation time for every hour of inspection time. Total appraisal fees start at $350.00 and go up from there depending on number of hours involved in the assignment. Please email me or contact our office at 888-820-6623 for a free inspection and consultation.
Signed contract and deposit (25%) is required at the time of inspection. The balance is due and payable prior to receipt of the appraisal. The appraisal report provided to client is USPAP compliant and includes a digital library of the inventory.
