Understanding the value of your belongings can be very important. Sometimes, we may want to know how much a family heirloom is worth, simply out of curiosity. Most of the time, however, items are valuated for an unforeseen reason, such as an insurance claim, or for financial or business purposes. Some common instances that may require an appraisal might be:
- Business closings
- Divorce or dissolution of partnerships
- Damage claims
- Estate Sales or division of an estate
