Why Choose a Graduate or Master Personal Property Appraiser (GPPA or MPPA)?

These professionals have completed extensive training as a Graduate Personal Property Appraiser (GPPA) and know the methodology required to appraise personal property in compliance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). In addition to the GPPA training, Master Personal Property Appraiser (MPPA) professionals have completed asset-specific training and have greater experience in personal property appraisal.

GPPA and MPPA differentiates auction professionals as appraisers, a more authoritative status, versus valuators. GPPA professionals provide appraisals that are accepted by regulatory professionals – such as bankruptcy trustees, insurance agents, the IRS, the court of law and others – that require USPAP compliance. MPPA professionals provide appraisals that require asset-specific specialization and a more in-depth experience.

Here’s what others have to say about GPPA and MPPA Auction Professionals

[The auction professional] was our primary point person… on a Chapter 7 Arizona bankruptcy case. The case… consisted of 21+ acres of real estate, warehouses, and manufacturing equipment located in… North Carolina. You can imagine the difficulties that we would have encountered trying to handle this case from Arizona. So having a local, trusted professional with bankruptcy experience was critical to the successful outcome of the case. [The auction professional] categorized the assets, gave a professional opinion as to their fair market value, and cataloged the personal property for auction along with the Real Estate. He also brought two well-qualified bidders to the table, which helped bring in… more for the land and buildings than the court was initially expecting.
