An appraisal is a professionally developed, reasoned conclusion of value. This value is based upon research at the appropriate market levels, and is substantiated by market examples. A professional appraisal is prepared for a specific purpose with independence, impartiality, and objectivity. An appraisal report is a signed document, suitable for submission to insurance companies, the courts and the Internal Revenue Service. All appraisals adhere to the Code of Ethics of the Appraisers Association of America and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
