Losing a loved one is never easy, but it can become even more difficult when there are administrative challenges or inheritance disputes to deal with. One of the most common sources of conflict when it comes to dealing with someone’s estate is a lack of solid information about the true value of jewelry, art, firearms, coins, etc. Fortunately, our team at Carolina Silver & Gold offers high-quality estate services to give you the information you need, making the whole process easier for you. Below, we will go over a few of the benefits of using professional estate services to encourage you to give them a try.

 Benefits of Professional Estate Services

  • Accuracy – One benefit of using our estate services is increased appraisal accuracy. In other words, our team has the right knowledge and experience to provide a fair, unbiased, and accurate assessment of the value of your various items. When family members try to research these matters themselves, they often get inaccurate or conflicting results, which can lead to more stress and conflict, so it’s best to leave it to the pros.
  • Officiality – Another reason to use professional estate services is because most banks, courts, and insurance companies will only accept professional appraisals. If you want to be able to insure an heirloom, for example, you will need to have it officially appraised first in order to get the protection you are looking for.
  • Profit – A third benefit of using professional estate services is that experts like those on our team can show you the true value of the various items in the estate. In our experience, people tend to undervalue these things, which can lead them to miss out on a significant amount of profit when selling them. If you simply want to offload the furniture and other items as quickly as possible, it’s understandable to skip this process, but if you want to get the most value from your inheritance, we encourage you to get the estate professionally appraised.
