Generally, settling an estate necessitates an extensive appraisal report to establish fair market value for the home to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We know that when you lose a loved one, even thinking about an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, often the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is ordered. Our staff is accustomed to the systems and requirements needed to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethical obligations stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes us to confidentiality, providing the highest degree of discretion for you and your family.

Most people don't realize that the IRS needs reports filed to show the numbers involved in estate sales.

One of the most essential requirements in an appraisal is an appraiser-backed opinion of value in a comprehensive reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. A report of this caliber will certainly demonstrate your claim that the numbers displayed within the report are well-founded and accurate.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
