Appraisal Terms You Should Know

When getting your valuables appraised, there are concepts you should be aware of:

  • Fair Market Value: A price at which a “willing buyer and seller” would agree to complete a sale. Fair market value is used for estate tax, estate planning, marital division, charitable contributions, or other informational purposes.
  • Replacement Value: What it would cost to replace property with something of similar origin, age, quality, condition, or provenance.
  • Damage Appraisal: To support making client whole when objects have been damaged in transit, fire, flooding, etc.
  • Loss Appraisal: To support making client whole when there has been a complete loss of the property.
  • Casualty Loss Appraisal: To support a tax deduction for loss of property with the IRS.
  • Liquidating Value: The value given to property that is sold or changes hands under forced or limiting conditions such as bankruptcy. It is provided for commercial and judicial purposes.
