Method of Appraisal

There are three stages to the methodology of Munari Auctions’ Certified Appraisals.

First, we offer a Free Consultation with the client to identify and discuss the property and the issues.

Part 1  Identifying and recording the assets.

Part 2  Analyzing and researching the item or items and determining Fair Market Value.

Part 3  Preparing a final written Appraisal.

Cost of Appraisals

The expense of the report is incrementally stepped according to the level of work performed.

The time for each step is determined by the scope of work, which includes travel, location, amount of personal property and the necessary research to determine the total facts in final Fair Market Value opinion.

The value of the items being appraised has no bearing on the cost of the appraisal. i.e., “An appraisal for a simple oil painting worth $100 may cost more than a sculpture worth $10,000.  The cost of the appraisal is determined on the factors of information and labor needed to arrive at the FMV.


There are several types of appraised values such as, the item’s value in the market often called “its fair market value”, and  referred to as the price paid by a willing buyer to a willing seller. Another is the replacement value, which is the retail price that would have to be paid to replace the item. There are others, depending on the reason for the appraisal.

These appraisals based on the “reason for the appraisal” may include, fair market value, replacement value, marketable cash value, actual cash value, liquidation value, and salvage value.

Depending on the use of an appraisal different values will be applied to the personal property,  such as in a  divorce proceeding, a forced bankruptcy sale, charitable contributions, or an insurance damage claim.  The correct value level might be the result of the specific terms of an insurance policy or legal court settlement.  To be clear, different purposes of the appraisal might reflect different appraised final values.

Munari Auctions offers both fair market and insurance appraisals for private individuals, corporations, museums, banks, estate lawyers, etc. Appraisals are  private and confidential. Many factors determine appraisal fees, including research, time and travel.
