Why Accurate Valuations in Fine Art Aren t Just Numbers, They re a Necessity

Over our 20 years in business, we’ve seen quite a few artworks cross our paths. From intricate oil paintings to fascinating sculptures, our work allows us to explore the world of art every day. We believe in the importance of fine art in enriching our lives and culture, and that’s why we are committed to providing accurate valuations. Today, I want to talk about why getting an accurate valuation for your works of fine art is more than just a bureaucratic step; it’s an absolute necessity.

Protecting Your Investment

Art is not just an expression of human thought and emotion; it’s also an investment. If you’ve purchased a piece of fine art, you’ve invested a part of your wealth into it. Just like any other investment, you should know exactly what it’s worth. An inaccurate valuation can lead to a disastrous underinsurance, leaving you vulnerable should anything unfortunate happen to the piece. Accurate valuations ensure that you can insure the artwork for its actual worth, protecting your financial investment comprehensively.

Planning for the Future

Whether it’s estate planning or contemplating the possibility of selling your collection in the future, an accurate valuation serves as an essential piece of information. Tax implications, for example, can hinge on the appraised value of your art collection. An overestimation can result in higher taxes, while an underestimation might arouse suspicion and lead to penalties. Therefore, having accurate valuations in place is key to a smooth process down the line.

Market Dynamics

The art market is constantly in flux. What was valued highly yesterday may not necessarily hold the same price tag tomorrow. This is where we come in. With our finger on the pulse of the art world, we update valuations to reflect the current market. Regular and accurate appraisals mean you’re always prepared, whether you’re looking to sell or simply understand the value of your collection.

Enhancing Credibility

If you decide to sell your art piece, the first thing a prospective buyer will ask for is the valuation. A professional and accurate valuation not only increases the credibility of the sale but also instills confidence in the buyer. It proves that the artwork is genuine, that you know its worth, and that you’re offering a fair price.
