Harris Estate Services, LLC provides professional written estate appraisals that meet USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) standards. Professional appraisals are sometimes required for estate and probate court purposes. David Harris specializes in written appraisals for estate purposes. The types of items we appraise include but are not limited to antiques, collectibles, automobiles, art, coins/currency, jewelry/watches, musical instruments, firearms, and residential contents.

The appraisal process involves these steps.

  1. We'll visit and inspect the personal property. Digital pictures and notes of the property are taken.
  2. Relevant comparable sales data and historical data are researched and analyzed.
  3. A professional report providing information on the type of appraisal and valuation conducted, the qualifications of the appraiser, and an itemized list of the property items with descriptions and values is sent to you.

An estimate of cost will be provided before we start. We do not charge a percentage of the property value for an appraisal. We do not buy any items or estates that we appraise. This insures a fair and objective appraisal of the client's property.
