What is personal property?

Personal property is a right or interest in personal things that are moveable. Immovable property, like land or houses, is called real property.

At Specialty Appraisals we perform personal property appraisals for antiques, fine art, jewelry, vehicles and household contents.

We are IRS Qualified and USPAP certified.

We are graduate certified appraisers from the College for Appraisers and accredited to appraise by Appraisers National Association (not just "members"). We are current with all USPAP requirements and re-certify every five years. If you need an antique appraisal, a fine art appraisal or a jewelry appraisal, please call us. We will be happy to answer any questions for you.


We are located in Southern California.
