Why You Need an Appraiser

Today’s complex and tumultuous markets requires the expertise of a good appraiser. Credible and defensible results are essential when dealing with problems such as:

  • Dissolution cases involving real or other property;
  • Expert witness for a damages case;
  • Value opinions for a variety of ownership interests;
  • Valuations of property in Estates or Trusts;
  • Determining a portion of ownership interest in property;
  • Assisting your client in making a prudent business decision; and
  • Assuming the lead or supporting a valuation team for diverse property (Real, Personal, and Intangible).

Why You Need an ASA-Designated Appraiser

ASA-designated appraisers have completed rigorous education requirements, must adhere to high ethical and moral standards, and have extensive and specialized appraisal experience to meet your needs. You can be assured that all designated members of ASA:

  • Have achieved qualifications superior to non-designated appraisers;
  • Have passed rigorous testing, education, and experience qualification standards;
  • Maintain higher standards of ethics and educational requirements and are subject to disciplinary actions for lack of adherence to these standards;
  • Prepare appraisal reports that meet or exceed the standards of peer review, the standards outlined in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and ASAʼs Principles of Appraisal Practice and Code of Ethics; and
  • Maintain their designation by demonstrating a commitment to continuing education and professional appraisal activities every five (5) years.
