AAE Appraisal Services
Choose your appraiser wisely
Before you select an appraiser, you should be aware that there are no state or federal laws that regulate the minimum training of a personal property appraiser. This fact has allowed many untrained or under-qualified individuals to pose as appraisers. It is important that you make an informed choice about the appraiser you are about to hire.
Questions that you want to ask before hiring an appraiser include:
1. What is the appraisers formal educational background.
2. Are they Accredited or Certified through a recognized Appraisers Association.
3. What is their specialty area.
An appraisal report from AAE Appraisal Services will be well-researched and documented. Our appraisals are written in conformity with and are subject to the International Society of Appraisers' Appraisal Report Writing Standard, as well as The Appraisal Foundation's Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and to the ISA Code of Ethics. We pledge that all information obtained in the course of an appraisal will be held in the strictest confidence and released only at the request of the client.
