Simply put, an appraisal is an opinion of value.
How we report that value to you, the client, depends on your needs, how you intend to use the appraisal, the complexity of the assignment, professional standards that govern our practice and other factors. The first step in any prospective appraisal assignment, therefore, is to determine the Scope of Work that applies to your situation.
All the appraisals we do conform with The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) adopted the by Appraisal Foundation. We also adhere to the Standards of Professional Practice and the Code of Ethics of the Appraisal Institute. These regulations permit appraisers to provide a variety of appraisal and report types to suit our client’s needs. The regulations distinguish between the process of conducting an appraisal (the development process) and the format in which the appraisal results are reported (reporting options).
Sterling DiSanto and Associates can tailor each assignment to the specific needs of the client.
