Settling an estate commonly demands an appraisal to suggest fair market value for the home involved. It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, it is possible that the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is required. Zacour & Associates, Inc. assures that our appraisers are knowledgeable about the procedures and requirements needed by revenue services to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date your loved one passed away. The ethical obligations stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our staff to confidentiality, certifying the fullest degree of privacy for you and your loved ones.

The necessity of owning an appraisal when dealing with government agencies to explain income when filing documents is often not considered by most people.
