Research Methods for Appraisers

Proper research and methodology (“due diligence”) is key while conducting appraisals. This course will give you a foundation in appraisal research methods and tools. These tools enable an appraiser to research a work of art or an object, determine the appropriate market for comparables, write a narrative analysis, and assign a value. We will explore the libraries, museums, reference centers, and galleries, as well as specific books and price guides, that can be invaluable resources to appraisers. Real life appraisal problems will be addressed, giving you a broad exposure to standards and methodologies. Each session meets four times; attendance is required for all four meetings.
