One of a Kind

Appraisal Economics has completed many unique, one-of-a-kind engagements that are difficult to classify into a specific industry. Sometimes the company, industry, products, or services are truly without equal, which requires the expertise of a particularly skilled team of appraisers. Complex engagements that require a high level of skill and deep industry experience are our specialty.


We have completed unusual assignments in some of the following industries:

  • Aerospace and defense contractors
  • Casino development options
  • Copyrights to music, books, and comic book characters
  • Museums
  • Private schools
  • Recycling and sanitation
  • Sports franchises including baseball, football, and basketball
