Our Approach

Our approach is simple, keeping you organized while saving you time. Let's face it, itemizing and documenting household personal possessions is a long and daunting task. Most people don't have a list of personal household belongings, these are called your assets, and when the time arises, we are forced to grab a pen and paper and try to list everything. Often we look to the internet for help or when required, hire an appraiser.  

That's why at Appraise Estate we've designed "for-yourself" software. This user-friendly, intuitive, full of industry tips and tricks tool, let's you get the assistance you need quickly, while managing your estate.  

Auto-filling documents using a template format, simplifies the process of asset inventory, with drop down menus, room choices, item selections, and organized layout. You can also assign beneficiaries, owners and record your own dollar value estimations.


Choose from Asset List View or Photo Gallery View, to review your work, and generate professional Standard of Practice documents from the perspective of Licensed Appraisers.
