What does this mean?

Hi Bob,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I'm not certain that this isn't a print but have valued it as if it were an original graphite/paper drawing; if it turns out to be a print, it would be worth less.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

Raphael Soyer (American, 1899-1987)
Untitled (Standing female nude)
graphite on paper
signed lower right
matted and framed, image 22 by 15 inches; framed 32 by 26 inches
CONDITION: appears to be in good condition
PROVENANCE: inherited
$200-300*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you again for using Mearto.

I sent additional images. This is a graphite on paper original. Most of Raphael Soyer paintings I see on line are lithographs asking for $500 or more. Very few are graphite on paper and these are in the $1,000 and much more range. My item is framed and larger than most. Can you reconsider your opinion and reply back. I want to list this for sale and want to be accurate. Thank you

Are you looking at auction results websites or gallery/private dealer websites where the values are retail?
My value - and the values Mearto provides - are fair-market, for auction purposes, which are always lower than retail prices.
I am, of course, happy to reconsider my valuation if you've seen a comparable (in size, medium and subject matter) work that has sold at auction in the last 5 years. Please provide the link to that sale.
