Settling an estate most often requires an appraisal to determine fair market value for the house therein. We know that in this time of loss, ordering an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, now and then there are times that the effective date of an appraisal report deviates from the time of death. Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services assures that we are knowledgeable about the procedures and requirements requested by revenue services to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) keeps us to confidentiality, certifying the highest degree of privacy for you.
