Appraisal fees are strictly based on working time and complexity of the items being valued.
The appraiser's time generally includes travel to and from the location of the subject items, personal examination and photographs of the items to be appraised, type and extent of research and analysis required by the assignment and preparation of a professional and competent appraisal report.
As an example: A typical complete appraisal report for ten (10) works of art, including 1 hour travel time, on site examination, photography, research and preparation of all appraisal documents would be approximately $495.
