The Difference That Matters

An appraiser is one who is in the business of concluding an opinion of value or quality of property (e.g., interests in business assets, common stock, real estate, personal property, intangible property, etc.).  There are a wide variety of reasons that drive demand for independent appraisals - some are required by law and others are driven by need for assurance, risk mitigation, impartiality and objectivity. A professional appraiser delivers unbiased insight and valuation conclusions, and often is the only independent party in a subject engagement, whether it is a transaction, litigation dispute, strategic planning decision, etc.  Because it is up to the consumer to ultimately select and hire a qualified appraiser, a question that often arises is - how do I assess the quality, capability and suitability of an appraiser for my specific need?

Although there are several appraisal designations, provided by various organizations, the ASA-designated appraiser is much more. Members of the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Society of Appraisers - with their ASA accreditation, education, valuation experience and adherence to ethical practices - make all the difference when consumers need independent, credible opinions of value on property.  In short, ASA-accredited appraisers are valuation experts, and the meticulous ASA accreditation ensures that our appraisers are accurate, impartial and credible. They are educated and experienced in their fields and are respected members of their Southern California communities. They can deliver independent valuations that assure your property is appraised at the proper value for the assignment.  Learn more about the rigorous ASA-accreditation and member selection process.
