About AVI

Learn More About Us

Asset Verification, Inc.

Since our founding in 1998, Asset Verification, Inc. (AVI) has provided professional inventory and appraisal services to affluent individuals and families worldwide. Whether your needs are for insurance-to-value, estate planning activities or both, AVI is committed to providing cutting edge tools to catalog and appraise not only fine and decorative art, but all other personal property assets including antiques, china, silver, rugs and jewelry. All appraisal activities meet Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP) and IRS reporting guidelines. All work is completed in-house and stored under a unique client ID number in a secure encrypted database for a minimum of five years.

Our primary goal is to provide cost-effective, value-added tools so our clients can accurately manage their personal property assets and allow insurance-to-value or estate planning decisions to be based on facts, not estimates. AVI is truly an unbiased third-party provider with no financial interest in the assets we inventory. This insures that all information we produce remains confidential. At AVI, we neither receive, nor pay contingent commissions to carriers or brokers, solidifying our unbiased third-party position.

Since our inception, we have used the square footage of the residence as the primary factor to determine the cost of our whole house inventory and appraisal services, not an ambiguous hourly rate. Using a square footage structure allows AVI’s clients to know exactly what services they will receive and the associated costs, which are confirmed in a formal Letter of Agreement, before our team arrives on-site. This letter will also confirm the dates the work is scheduled, names of our Inventory Specialists and Gemologist who will be on-site and the terms of sale.

Testimonials

What Our Clients Are Saying

“As a former insurance claims professional, I finally did what our industry has recommended and had the contents of my home cataloged and appraised by Asset Verification, Inc. To say that I was pleased is an understatement! Not only did they do our artwork, furniture, sterling silver, china and general household furnishings, but they also did our jewelry and clothing!”

- P. Lawrence

“When our insurance agent suggested we have this done, I was a bit overwhelmed with the thought of having strangers in my home. When the team arrived, they were very professional and after the walk-through was finished, I felt much more comfortable! What was accomplished in in those few days was amazing. I highly recommend Asset Verification!”

- P.A. Scott

“When our mother died my sisters and I were a mess. The process of determining what would happen to all the things our parents had in their two homes was overwhelming! However, we were very happy to know that AVI had documented the contents of both homes and the appraisal report was a real help.”

- D. Jackson
