No, that is an unethical practice and Kuehnert Appraisal & Consulting does not participate in that practice.
As no one is an expert in everything, we work with a network of specialists when necessary. This issue is always discussed and approved by the client.
Because of our extensive appraisal experience and daily exposure to the market, we may know the value immediately, however, we
adhere to strict report writing guidelines and research and develop appraisal reports accordingly. Value estimates and or determinations provided by Kuehnert Appraisal & Consulting are not a 60-second sound bite that you might have seen on the Antiques Roadshow.
The Roadshow appraisers are vetted by specialty and their valuations are based on sound factual information, which they are able to research more fully either prior to the on-site interview and/or after the show has been taped. If corrections are to be made, they are done post-production and corrected after being aired.
There are certain situations where an informal verbal report is more appropriate than to invest the time and expense of a formal written report. This kind of report is not appropriate for tax or insurance purposes. To comply with ISA and USPAP requirements the appraisers notes and certification statement will need to be completed and added to the work file.
