Certified Written Appraisals
$100/hr. (3 hr. minumim)
Whether for insurance, estate, charitable donation, or in preparation for resale, Kwiat Art Advisory's fine and decorative art certified appraisals are compliant with the International Society of Appraisers Appraisal Report Writing Standard and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), the Congressionally recognized set of appraisal standards promulgated by the Appraisal Foundation. Our appraisals are legal documents and are strictly confidential unless otherwise noted by the client.
We charge $100 / hr. (3 hour minimum). If you have between 1-10 items, 1 hour is generally sufficient to inspect, photograph and record details pertaining to your works of art. Another two hours would then be required to conduct research and write the final report. If you have more than 10 items, we would be happy to create a project estimate. We ask that $100 be paid either before or at the time of inspection, by check or credit card (via Paypal), with the remaining balance payable upon notice of completion. Once payment has been received in full we will then mail you the final report via USPS Certified Mail.
