What is an Appraisal?

An appraisal is a valuation of property provided by a professional appraiser. A professional appraiser will prepare a comprehensive report for their clients which provides his/her opinion of value at a given point in time for any type of property whether it be a business, farm equipment, or more.

Preparing an appraisal involves research, analysis of all pertinent information and the proper experience, up to date knowledge and sound judgment to make a reasonable and supportable opinion of value.

Why Would I Have an Appraisal Done?

Appraisals are done for many reasons ranging from estate planning to determining equipment value for insurance or tax purposes. A client may also want a financial appraisal completed to be able to upgrade their equipment or refinance part of their company. Here at Miedema Appraisals we want to make sure you receive the most accurate appraisal of your property. The most important factor to be concerned with is choosing the correct appraiser to do the work.
