News-Antique.com - Apr 05,2013 - Colosses LLC which is doing business as “ValueThisNow.com” has teamed up with industry leading personal property appraisal expert David J. Maloney, Jr., AOA CM and software development expert John Smulo of “Purple Cow Websites” to create an online personal property Appraisal Management Company. “Our appraisal reports will conform to the rigorous ethical and performance standards of USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) said founder Richard Johnston.
According to Mr. Johnston, the companies software and process will condense the amount of time it takes to appraise personal property from days to as little as a few hours in some cases. The founder also claims that consumers will see significant cost reductions for appraisal reports. “USPAP trained Appraisers often charge $150 per hour or more, but ValueThisNow.com offers professional appraisals for as little as $27. We can do this for most types of property by means of our innovative software design which substantially reduces report preparation time,” said Chief Appraisal Officer, Dave Maloney. ValueThisNow.com’s innovative interface also allows the completed appraisal document to be seamlessly pushed to various social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google Plus for easy sharing with friends and family. In this manner, collectors will be able to share items they have just had appraised with their favorite social media outlets so others can see what they have collected, bought or sold. The software also makes it easy to send documents to insurance companies, legal experts and others for review and processing.
The company thinks that their personal property appraisal solution will have meaningful application for business and consumers who require high standards for quality and ethics that USPAP dictates at a very affordable price point.
The company is working on other innovative tools to speed information to users who need the involvement of an expert when it comes to antiques and collectibles.
