Personal Property Appraisal Reports

The personal property appraiser must meaningfully and appropriately communicate assignment results. All reports, (oral or formal) must be properly understood by intended users and relevant to intended use. 

All appraisers should conform with the

Uniform Standards Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP)

Understanding the Market


Connoisseurship and Valuation 

Novotny seeks to understand the marketplace for all types of objects in the vast universe of movable new personal property, antiques and collectibles

(except for coins, stamps and jewelry). 

Markets change over time. There are multiple markets. Objects frequently have more than one market. Demand must be established to determine  the  market to research based upon intended use. 

The appraiser's objective is to identify and research  the appropriate market based on  market accessibility and demand for the item and the value definition that applies.

Since 1979 Novotny has studied  both common and rare objects. He will likely understand the unique quality and value characteristics that determine good, better and best for your property. His knowledge comes from market experience and  daily study.   

 Novotny has bought, sold, traded and appraised personal property since 1979.
