What is it Worth? EJ’s Auction Offers New Online Instant Appraisals

Monthly Appraisal Days Continue – Next Event is December 20

GLENDALE, Ariz. (Nov. 26, 2019) – What is it worth? That’s the big question most people have when they are trying to decide whether to hold onto or sell an antique, fine art, collectibles or a family heirloom.

Glendale-based EJ’s Auction & Appraisal is now offering a new online Instant Appraisal service for those wishing to get a quick assessment on single items.

“We launched the service last month after we kept getting requests for it,” said Erik Hoyer, CEO of EJ’s Auction & Appraisal. “We still hold our monthly Appraisal Days at our auction house, and people can still make appointments for free consultants with our consignment specialists, but with this new service, we can accommodate patrons who need valuations quickly.”

With the new online service, patrons can choose to purchase a Fair Market Valuation for a single item for $29.99 or an Insurance Valuation for $49.99.

“It’s important to note that the Instant appraisals are completed in accordance with USPAP, which means they adhere to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice rules and regulations,” Hoyer said. “In addition, each instant appraisal through EJ’s is accepted by The Appraisal Foundation, which is the nation’s foremost authority on the valuation profession.”

Hoyer said it’s also beneficial to include as much detail as possible about the item.

“The valuations are only as good as the information provided,” he said. “Incomplete information will result in inaccurate valuations. It’s important to enter every detail about the item that you know, along with up-close, detailed photographs.”

EJ’s patrons using the online Instant Appraisal service can also qualify to receive future online appraisals for an entire estate at discount.

EJ’s Auction & Appraisal also holds monthly Appraisal Days, with the next event set for Friday, December 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Glendale auction house. A pre-auction verbal assessment of antiques, heirlooms and other items will be provided in an open room format. The limit is three items per person per session. While the events are free, reservations are requested.

“For those downsizing or helping a loved one liquidate an estate, we also offer a free consultation at your home,” Hoyer said.

EJ’s Auction & Appraisal conducts exciting, high-energy auctions at 10 a.m. every Saturday at the full-service auction house, located at 5880 W. Bell Road, in Glendale on the northeast corner of 59th Avenue and Bell Road.
