What is an appraisal?

A valuation of property. A professional appraiser, as designated by ASA, can analyze, evaluate, and research any kind of property and give their opinion of its value at the time of appraisal. An appraiser must develop a complete report for their clients regarding the value of the property. This process requires professional experience, knowledge, and judgment skills to provide an accurate and rational appraisal.

Why it is important to get appraisal:

Getting your rug appraised and keeping relevant certification regarding its value is important for the protection and handling of your rug. Everyone should have their rug appraisal as it is useful in a variety of situations such as:

Selling and buying purposes

Whether you are selling or buying a rug, it is a good thing to know what different rugs are valued at for record keeping. Have you found a rug you like? Get it professionally appraised to find out its value. Do you want to sell your rug? Get it appraised to see how much it is worth!

Inheritance of antique rugs

Have you or a family member inherited an antique rug? Are you curious about its value (i.e. how much it is worth)? Even if you are not interested in selling it, there are other reasons that an appraisal is essential for the protection of the rug.

In case of theft and for insurance claims

If your antique rug is lost or stolen, it is vital that you know how much the rug was valued at. A professional appraisal, as well as the appropriate paperwork/certification, can help when it comes to insurance claims and reports.
