Black Oak Estate & Appraisal Services provides fine art appraisals to private collectors, attorneys, accountants, and insurance professionals. All of our appraisals are compliant with the Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP)*.
We handle a range of appraisal assignments including those needed for insurance coverage, estate planning, equitable distribution, estate tax filings, and charitable donations.
Services include onsite examination, in-depth market research, objective and unbiased market analyses, and detailed, substantiated reports explaining and supporting the valuation conclusion. All appraisals are USPAP compliant.
Our fees are based on an hourly basis - they are never contingent on the value of the subject property. There is a three-hour minimum for insurance appraisals and a four-hour minimum for tax-related appraisals. A written estimate and work agreement are provided in advance.
