Elizabeth Antique Appraisal Service @ Appraisal Ottawa .com
Appraisers of Fine Art, Antiques, Collectibles, and Household Goods, since 1965
You may own an item or several items, which you are interested in selling, but have no idea as to what the items should be sold
for. Basically this service involves going to your residence and examinining the pieces. If we feel that the pieces require or deserve
an official appraisal, we can then proceed with that appraisal at "Market Value
" (for the purpose of selling). This market value is
what you should ask when advertising the item. It may also be in your interest to have an appraisal done in terms of replacement
value, so that you can show its "Replacement Value
" to prospective buyers.
If we determine that your items have no real
inherent value, then we will tell you so, see "Consultation
". When dealing with certain items, i.e. artwork, often we cannot
give you an accurate appraisal without doing research, therefore for most artwork an official appraisal is best.
required we will also advise you on how to best sell the item.
If we feel that the item is of sufficient value and possesses
sufficient demand, then we maybe willing to see if we can actually facilitate the sale of the item (our Bokerage Service).
