Joel Straus is qualified to perform various types of artwork appraisal in accordance with Uniform Standards
of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
IRS: Fair Market Value appraisals can be used for the IRS when considering estate planning, charitable donations,
and non-monetary gifts.
Insurance: Up-to-date appraisals can ensure that insurance premiums
properly reflect changes in artwork values. Individual works may require additional or reduced coverage. Coverage
adjustments could result in significant savings.
Re-sale: Market value appraisals are required for most resale transactions.
Resale reports can assist collectors in making important decisions about their collections.
