by WorthPoint Staff (07/24/12).

CHICAGO – The newly published 2012 edition of “Journal of Advanced Appraisal Studies” contains 19 in-depth original research articles and topical discussions relating to personal property appraisal. While the Journal is targeted primarily at professional property appraisers, it also contains useful insights and information for anyone associated with the business of personal property such as auction houses, estate lawyers, insurance brokerage houses, museums and cultural property conservators.

Todd W. Sigety, editor of the 2012 edition of “Journal of Advanced Appraisal Studies”.

According to Michael Conner Ph. D, ISA–AM, the mission of the Foundation for Appraisal Education is to “promote the advancement of education related to personal property appraising.” The Foundation was formed in 2002 as an independent arm of the International Society of Appraisers. The Foundation raises funds to provide scholarships for continuing studies for both new and veteran appraisers by publishing the Journal.

“The Journal of Advanced Appraisal Studies is now in its fifth year of publication,” said Todd W. Sigety, ISA CAPP, who edited the book. “From what started as a simple concept of creating a platform for personal property appraisers and allied professionals to publish scholarly works, reviews, primers, theories and experiences has now grown and matured into the publication of choice for our profession. The Journal has developed into an important tool to assist new and emerging appraiser as well as becoming an incubator for developing new concepts and ideas for experienced appraisers.

“The 2012 edition of the Journal contains a wealth of appraisal related content on varied topics such as the 2011 art market, photography skills, report writing, Hedonic appraisal approach, marketing through TV, radio and public appearances, the Asian market, Asian textiles, appraising Judaica, book appraising, wood identification, inspection tools, multi-part antiques, artist archives, fair value, women in 20th century design, fraud on eBay, appraising books, and artist identification,” Sigety added. “All articles are specifically written and selected for the personal property appraiser. Appraisers from the three major personal property organizations, ISA, ASA and AAA as well as independent appraisers, allied professionals, and educators have been active supporters and contributors to the journal project.”

The 300-page 2012 edition of the Journal is available online for $55 (previous editions are also available for $35). Excerpts of articles are also available on the AFE website.
