Settling an estate generally depends on an appraisal to acquire fair market value for the property therein. We empathize that when you lose a loved one, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, often the time of death differs from the time the appraisal is needed. Our company is knowledgeable about the systems and requirements needed to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethical obligations listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, guaranteeing the fullest degree of privacy for you and your loved ones.

The necessity of owning a real estate appraisal when working with government agencies to prove income when filing documents is often overlooked by most people.
