The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice are the worldwide standard for quality appraisal work.
USPAP outlines specific standards and methods that are used in all forms of appraisal from real estate to machinery to intangibles such as goodwill.
Lenders, insurers, courts, and government tax officials look for USPAP standards to know that they can rely on an appraisal report and that it will withstand scrutiny should any of their processes be audited. Most importantly, a Certified USPAP compliant appraisal will have a professional behind it to substantiate and defend the valuation should the need ever arise.
If you are looking for a certified appraisal for any purpose, be sure to ask for a sample appraisal so that you know what type of product you’re getting.
We are always ready to share a sample of our work. Please contact us for information.
