What is an appraisal and why hire an appraiser?
An appraisal is a valuation of property provided by a professional appraiser such as those designated by ASA. A professional appraiser will prepare a comprehensive report for their clients which provides his/her opinion of value at a given point in time for any type of property whether it be a business, a diamond, an electricity-generating windmill, a sculpture, a house or more.
Preparing an appraisal involves research, analysis of all pertinent information and the proper experience, knowledge and judgment to make a reasonable and supportable opinion of value.
There are all different types of appraisers as there are all different types of properties. ASA is the source to find professional appraisers for all types of property including business assets, common stock, real estate, personal property, intangible property, machinery and equipment. There are a wide variety of reasons that drive demand for independent appraisals – some are required by law and others are for assurance, risk mitigation, impartiality and objectivity.
Members of the Boston Chapter of the American Society of Appraisers – with their ASA accreditation, education, valuation experience and adherence to ethical practices – make all the difference when consumers need independent, credible opinions of value on property.
