The Purpose of an Insurance Appraisal

1. Document ownership of the property

2. Clearly estimate and justify the current replacement value of the property.

3. Support conclusions with facts based on market research and accepted principles of valuation ethics and standards.

4. Keep valuations up-to-date and timely, as the art market changes over time.

How often should I update my art appraisal?

Insurance companies advise keeping the valuations of collections up-to-date with appraisals every five years. This will provide you with adequate protection and a good sense of how your collection fits within the current market for art.
