An appraisal can reduce risks such as being over or under insured, inequitably dividing personal property as part of an estate, being audited when claiming a deduction for charitable contributions or filing estate taxes, or selling for too little/paying too much. Appraisals conducted by Cheney Appraisal, an independent appraiser firm, are unbiased and impartial. Objective, qualified and professional, our goal is to minimize your financial risk.
Our comprehensive understanding of the art market can provide purchase and sales services for a single object, collection or estate. When starting a collection, we help you define, select, and buy art tailored to your unique aesthetic preferences and budget. When selling, we can negotiate preferential terms of sale on your behalf and identify the most advantageous venues for disposition including private sale, consignment, or auction.
Organize, preserve and protect the aesthetic, historic and financial value of your art. We begin by ensuring your collection is properly inventoried so you may take a more strategic approach to managing all aspects of your art including acquisition, disposition, loans, display and conservation.
