Depending on your intended use, we can provide the replacement value for insurance or the fair market value for estate planning, distribution, or gifting.

AVI Helps Clients Recover From Catastrophic Losses

$7,000,000 Loss By Fire Fully Recovered

The unthinkable happened in the fall of 2019. Our client since 2008 lost his main residence of 15,000 square feet to fire. The tragedy unfolded following the first fire of the fall season when ashes removed from the fireplace in the family room were not disposed of properly. The home was engulfed in flames before the fire department arrived and the beautifully- appointed home was reduced to ashes. Artwork collected over decades along with elegant furnishings, wine, and clothing totaling over $7,000,000 went up in smoke. Fortunately, because of AVI’s timely updated appraisals over the years, plus the use of Valuable Article Coverage, the client has fully recovered. Without AVI’s detailed inventory and appraisal report this could have been a grueling exercise to recreate from memory the necessary information needed in the claims process. We at AVI like to say, “AVI gives our clients more information than they need, unless they need it!”
