(Please note that an appraisal is not the same thing as an auction estimate.  As auctioneers, we may give auction estimates to provide guidance for clients or potential buyers.  An appraisal, on the other hand, is an independent opinion of value that is determined through research.  An appraisal is presented in a formal report that can be recognized by courts and attorneys, the government, banks and lenders, insurance companies, the IRS, and other institutions.)
