Getting an Appraisal for Estate Assets

When a loved one passes, the burden of valuing the estate assets rests on the shoulders of the family involved. While processing through the grief of losing a loved one, some may be tasked with assessing the inheritable items. This may include valuable coins collections, estate jewelry, and other various metals, jewels or gemstones.

The heirs to the estate may have difficulty accurately evaluating the pieces that have been left to them. These estate valuations will require a professional appraisal because each piece of property is unique, especially in condition, and often may require the everyday individual to utilize an appraisal service to properly evaluate and disburse correctly. 

U.S. Coins and Jewelry is a licensed precious metals dealer with the State of Texas and uses scales calibrated and certified annually with the State of Texas. We ensure that your client will receive an unbiased, honest fair market value for the inherited belongings.

Why get an Estate Settlement Appraisal?

Settling an estate is a process most individuals will be unfamiliar with and it’s not always as simple as reading a will and executing its directives. In some cases, estate settlements may require court and legal interventions. This can increase the emotional burden of a loved one’s passing, and the benefit of having an unbiased, reliable appraiser becomes clear.

You want the best for your client. Hiring a professional appraiser to determine the value of the property will ensure your client’s assets are divided fairly and equitably.
