You will see some auction houses offering “free appraisals”. Bear in mind, their interest is in getting people to sell merchandise at THEIR sales. Some think this is not really appraisal at all. You are likely getting an indication of what they think they can get at their sale, and it could be low in hopes the auction house can make a profit. Think of it this way: You would never ask the buyer of your home to tell you what it is worth, and then sell it to him. You get an independent assessment of the value of your home.
