Brent L. Miller offers in house appraisals starting at $95.00.
Estate appraisals are required by the IRS to be appraised at Fair Market Value, which is the amount the item would likely sell for in its present (used) condition in it's most common market. Examples of a common market would be a sale from the estate section of a jeweler, a sale at public auction, or a sale between peers. This appraised value is usually a lower value than an insurance replacement value or the original sale price of the piece.
