Before you hold that garage sale, you should enlist the help of an antique appraiser in Phoenix to check your items. For all you know, seemingly worthless items—like your grandma’s old furniture or paintings of unknown origin—might turn out to be very valuable antiques. Don’t just work with any appraiser, though. Here are important criteria when finding an antique appraiser:
• Accreditation – Legitimate antique appraisers have all the accreditations necessary and follow ethical and professional standards. Aside from being licensed and certified appraisers, they should also be insured.
• Experience - It helps if the appraiser has been in the business for many years. Only a trained eye can spot an antique right away and distinguish it from a fake.
• Services - Each appraiser has a specialty. If you have antique paintings or art pieces, make sure the appraiser is highly trained in that specific category.
