Valuation Services

When we are asked to provide a valuation for an item we are not able to appraise, we let the client know up front and utilize a network of contacts to find an expert.

Free Initial Consultation - A valuation may not always be expensive, however it may have value. I am certainly not interested in coming to your home and reviewing your objects, only to follow up via mail with a document telling you that your objects are worth less than expected.

We will never perform a valuation that we don’t believe serves the best interest of the client. At BnB Antiques, we have extensive hands-on experience and the ability to embrace technology. We are experienced professionals. We spend hours each day researching auction catalogs and attending live events. We are excited to be an organization completely immersed in the marketplace for material culture.

With a deep understanding of how to use and interpret online pricing databases, we are confident our services provide the expertise necessary to help anyone who may be  concerned that their family heirlooms will not be preserved for future generations.

  • Attention to detail and a humble devotion to integrity.
  • US-PAP compliant valuations that are prepared with expert knowledge and foresight.

Perhaps a valuation can be a simple list of objects with prices, but to our organization it is more important. It is family history. 

  • Dedicated to responsibility and required to show our work. 

In the valuation of each material culture object, we are doing our homework, documenting the process, and making sure the valuation we provide is exceptional.

 Estate Sales are a common method used for downsizing, however the focus may be on liquidation of assets.

Our focus is always on conservation and preservation of family history for educational purposes.  

E-mail, call, or send a text message and we will take things step by step, but we will never perform a valuation that we don’t believe serves the best interest of the client.

 Base rate is currently $175 per hour for field work and research, and $15 per hour for clerical work.

 2020, Our Shop in Milton, Delaware falls under our Valuations Department. The Talley Family has been from Delaware for over 330 years. Any family that has recorded their history for more than 300 years is significant for the purposes of historical conservation and preservation. Items the family has collected may have historical significance and can be saved from being discarded or sold. Without a professional valuation, there is a risk that important family heirlooms and historical objects could be lost forever. Estate Sales are another way to accomplish this objective; however they often focus on liquidation of assets for monetary purposes. Our focus is always on conservation and preservation of family history for educational purposes.

This home is near a local Wildlife Refuge and certainly a beautiful place to visit. We set up our canvas tent in the yard facing the vineyard and decided it was time to go glamping.
