Appraisal Types

AVI offers 3 different appraisal types for three different purposes. You may need to order one or more types of appraisals depending on your needs:

Replacement Value
When your valuable items may not be fully covered on your homeowners or renters insurance, use these appraisals to purchase more insurance coverage (riders) if needed. They are also useful for claims in case of loss.

Estate Value
Often used to distribute your valuable personal assets fairly and evenly to your beneficiaries either prior to or after death. They are also used to divide personal property in a divorce.

Donation Value
When you donate a valuable item to a 501c3 non-profit organization such as Salvation Army, this fair market value appraisal for charitable giving is IRS-approved and can be used for tax purposes.
