My name is Glenda,
You would need a Certified Art Appraiser to look at each piece in person, they will then write an appraisal, with value on each piece. I can help you get a list of artists in your area if you can tell me the city and state you are located in .

I am in Thousand Oaks, CA. I notice there are numerous and confusing appraisal certifications and many, many services available, with some even free or strictly online. There are also many articles about being careful about using some services. What I am looking for is a recommendation for choosing a specific service or individual appraiser without having to read all of the conflicting information available. I will be using the appraisal in order to purchase insurance on the items. Thanks!

Hello

I will only give you a list of Certified appraisers who are Credentialed through the International Society of Appraisers. They are all 100% Honest, Reliable, and Trustworthy. They are educated in their fields.

Are there any in Ventura County, CA, closer to where I am? I also called a couple of them so far -- one charges $200 per hour (per piece essentially), which would be rather expensive for the level of pieces I have, and some may not have much value at all. Does this sound like a reasonable cost? Also, another only handled comic illustrations. Is there a way to filter for types of expertise? Thanks!

Hello

I will see if there are some closer, these were all from the International society of appraisers, I will see if I can find some more, and let you know. The average is normally priced around 150.00 per hour, that is pretty common, but a lot of them are willing to work with you if you have a lot.

Will see what I can find.

My nearest zip code is 91362 or 91360. Close cities are Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Oak Park, Agoura Hills, Newbury Park, Moorpark are all very close, but not that large. Further, but close, are Calabasas, Camarillo, and Simi Valley, then maybe city of Ventura or Oxnard (most are in Ventura County).

Ok, I will see if I can get a list of appraisers closer to you. I will post back when I have the list.

Thanks, ***** ***** of these places claim to have certified appraisers, like the earlier list you sent?

If they are art appraisers they should all be certified, I did the research for Certified Appraisers in your area. Most Appraisers are all Compliant with American Society or International Society, or even with the IRS.

This latest list is somewhat confusing to me. At least one is a tattoo parlor, and the art studio I contacted doesn't do appraisals, but said they could tell me worth (not as an official appraisal).

These are the names that came up in your local area when searching for Art Appraisers.

You will need to call each one to see which one is best for you. The first list is the list from the International Society of Appraisers, they are all certified and are able to write appraisal reports for insurance purposes. The second list they do not say, that is why you call them. Art is a very specialized field so it is best to call each one

Here is another list, these are from the American Society of Appraisers, they are also qualified to write an appraisal for you.

This is the only appraisers that are listed in any of the data bases we pay to access, if there are more then they would be listed in a local phone book search. They are not listed in any of the data bases.
