News-Antique.com - Oct 02,2010 - The Appraiser Workshops blog readership and following is now to the point where the site will experiment with online interactive content activities. In this case by initiating a quarterly fine and decorative arts confidence survey.
The number of visitors to the site continues to grow with an increasing subscription base and dedicated readership, populated with professional appraisers, dealers and auction house specialists. Appraisers Workshops will not leverage that dedicated viewership into interactive online activities that result in content that is both needed and important to the profession.

Todd W. Sigety, ISA CAPP and partner in the Appraiser Workshops states "the strength in readership and direct access to professional appraisers through the site now allows for interactive options with our readers. With that in mind I have decided to start a quarterly confidence survey of the fine and decorative arts markets. As a profession, personal property appraisers need to include reliable and useful market data, metrics and statistics in our work product, valuations and market analysis. The Appraiser Workshops Fine and Decorative Arts Market Confidence Survey should assist appraisers and dealers in documenting marketing trends."
The survey form and link will be on the Appraiser Workshops blog for the next few weeks collecting market input from appraisers, dealers and auction specialists.
The survey is a short non-scientific market confidence survey asking the confidence level personal property appraisers have for several market sectors and levels.
Sigety continues "Initially the survey will be rather basic and elementary in its approach, and should only take a couple of minuets of your time. I have named the survey the Appraiser Workshops Fine and Decorative Arts Market Confidence Survey. I plan on circulating the survey on a quarterly basis. Results will be posted on the on the Appraiser Workshops Blog for all readers to view and hopefully use in documenting relevant market analysis and trends".
