THE APPRAISAL PROCESS
The Examination:            
The appraiser meticulously examines all the property to be included in the Appraisal Report while evaluating
characteristics, noting condition, obtaining measurements and taking photographs.  The time spent in this phase is
considered "On Site Time."

The Photographs:           
Digital or 35MM Color Photographs are taken to document the items existence and aid in the research.  
Photographs are included with the report and can be mounted and bound into the report for a nominal charge.

The Research:                
Value conclusions for appraisals are based upon comparable sales analysis for each item.  Research time is the
time taken to identify marks and labels, verify dates, locate comparable items, investigate retail markets, and
consult experts, if necessary.  This approach produces an accurate report that fully protects you and your
property.  The time spent in this phase is considered "Research Time."  Total "Research Time" will never exceed
three times the "On-Site" time.

The Report:                    
All appraisal reports consist of two sealed and bound copies of the completed appraisal.  There is no additional
fee for transcription and document preparation. Included in the report is a cover letter detailing the process taken
and definition of values used; a value summary sheet; an itemized list of the property appraised; and the
appraiser's qualifications.  Any photographs paid for by the client are sent with the final report.
