Informal Valuation & Appraisals

Curator* Writer* Editor*

Informal Valuation Services pertain to the theoretical aspects of property value: how preference, willingness to pay, subjective or arbitrary assessment, market analysis and retail support impact on value considerations for personal property. These services are provided outside of appraisal practice.

Appraisals are the empirical part of valuation services. Based on direct observation of market activity appraisers will communicate analysis, opinions and conclusions to the intended users of their valuation services, in a manner that is meaningful and not misleading. 


What is a USPAP certified Appraisal and why is it necessary?

Appraisers who prepare reports that subscribe to USPAP (the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) protect the public trust through ethical and competent determinations of value.

Mr. Roy, owner of Under the Moon, has received USPAP accreditation current to 2015. Valuation services are available but, regrettably, no appraisal assignments are being accepted at this time.
