Machinery & Equipment Appraisal


Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisals (CMEA) under the NEBBI Institute, serving the Mid-Atlantic region since 2009.


The valuation process that is followed in the preparation of a Summary Appraisal Report is an orderly procedure for arriving at an estimate of value. By following this procedure, our appraisers begin with a preliminary study of the items to be appraised and define the basis from which the appraisal is to be made. A program is then initiated for the accumulation, analysis, and observation of data. The data called for in the preliminary study is then gathered, classified, and analyzed.

TIMING: Most appraisals are completed within 10 days of the site visit, depending on the size and complexity of the job.

Machinery & Equipment Appraisal Overview & Facts

What is a Certified Appraisal and Who Can Prepare Them?
A Certified Appraisal is a Defensible Estimate of Value performed by a
certified professional Machinery & Equipment appraiser conducted
under the rules of Standard 8-2(b) of the Code of Uniform Appraisal
Standards. There are two recognized organizations that train and
certify appraisers – NEBBI and the Association of Machinery &
Equipment Appraisers

Why a Certified Appraisal?
The vast majority of organizations and/or individuals that have
reason to value their assets need an appraisal that can be defensible
in litigation and/or the party requesting the certified appraisal
requires it per policy.

To complete the valuation process, the appraiser integrates the information drawn from the site visit, market research and analysis of data and from the application of appraisal techniques to form a conclusion. This conclusion may be an estimate of value or a range in which the value may fall. An effective integration depends on an appraiser’s skill, experience, and judgment.

TIMING: Most appraisals are completed within 10 days of the site visit, depending on the size and complexity of the job.

“All I can say is nothing but good about Susan and Bill! They are top-notch. After 3 years of wasting my time with two other local brokers that should be listed as car salesmen, not brokers – I contacted Susan and met with her and Bill and in a short time we were meeting with potential buyers and were sold. Very professional. Very prompt. They got the job done. I would not hesitate to call them – you won’t be disappointed.”
