An itemized personal property appraisal or estate appraisal for a collection or entire estate should be conducted by a qualified appraiser. A qualified appraiser will provide you with an unbiased valuation so that you know the what your items are really worth before you make any decisions. Whether for insurance coverage or claims, equitable estate distribution, estate settlement, charitable donation, or personal planning, we can help. We appraise antiques, sterling silver, fine art, jewelry and home contents in the greater Tucson area. Appraisal reports from Lynn Roberts Appraisal are impartial and comply with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). The purpose of the USPAP is to promote and maintain a high level of public trust in appraisal practice by establishing requirements for appraisers. USPAP is the standard to which the federal government also holds real estate property appraisals.
Equitable Estate Distribution and Estate Settlement
Whether an estate has been left to heirs or must be divided due to divorce or dissolution, it is important to have a professionally prepared appraisal report. This report may be used for probate, trust and estate settlement. We will prepare an unbiased valuation for all items in the estate.
Standard homeowner insurance policy coverage for certain categories of personal property is limited. These categories may include jewelry, fine arts, silver and collections. To obtain additional coverage for these types of items, a personal property appraisal must be provided to your insurance company to establish the replacement cost. We will prepare your appraisal report for obtaining coverage on your valuable items.
Estate Personal Planning & Valuation
Are you curious about value of an item or collection you own? Perhaps you are doing some estate planning. Often people just want to know what their property is worth or have a collection of items they believe to be valuable. We will prepare an appraisal report of the value of the items.

Have something you would like to donate to a charitable organization, museum or school?
