When there is a need to know the value of your business or ownership in a private company, real or personal property, or intangible assets, the answer should come from a qualified certified or licensed appraiser. Should you, as a business or asset owner, choose the first person you meet or the person offering the lowest price to give you a value for your business, property, and/or assets?  

An appraisal is an independent, unbiased opinion of value given by a qualified, certified or licensed appraiser with the experience and competence to form a credible opinion of value.
So how does a company choose the right appraiser for their needs?
