ValueThisNow.com (VTN) is launching a new look and feel to its online personal property appraisal business. The company’s service allows consumers to log onto VTN’s website, enter in some information about virtually any type of antique or collectible and receive an online appraisal that conforms to the “Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice” commonly known as USPAP. USPAP is considered the gold standard for appraising personal property in the United States as it relates to developing appraisal reports that are ethical, reliable and credible.
The company currently offers 3 different types of online appraisals that range in price from $19.95 to $44.95. This includes a $19.95 streamlined appraisal and two types of full service appraisals—a full restricted report intended for use by the client only ($36.95) and a full summary appraisal report intended to be used by the client as well as others ($44.95). The latter might be useful for matters concerning wills, trusts, damage claims, insurance and divorce settlement when accepted by insurance underwriters, claims departments and legal counsel.
Traditional appraisers typically charge $150/hr. or more for USPAP compliant appraisals and can take days or weeks to complete. “With over 100 appraisers networked into the system and with advancements in online software, ValueThisNow.com can have most appraisal requests completed in under 3 hours,” said Founder, Richard Johnston. “We are happy to finally see an online appraisal management company that can solve so many consumer needs at such an attractive price point and with such a fast turnaround time,” he continued.
Anyone who needs a high quality appraisal but doesn't want to spend a lot of money will find this online tool very useful.
The company is offering the first 1,000 customers who purchase either of their two full service appraisals, 10% off of their purchase. The discount offer is good through the end of September 2013. Simply enter the following code at checkout: 19F1C6395B29CF3E
The company intends on expanding its offering later in 2014 to include an appraisal report that is relevant for a “collection of similar items.” The cost of this service is yet to be determined.
ValueThisNow.com currently has over fifty active appraisers onboard with another sixty moving through the signup process. VTN appraisers specialize in over 165 categories of antiques and collectibles, turnaround times are typically under three hours, and appraisals include an attractive report that consumers can download, keep for their personal records or email to friends, family and business associates.
The company’s service can take the guesswork out of knowing the value of almost any antique, collectible or piece of memorabilia. Try ValueThisNow.com today to get your items valued NOW!
