Settling an estate generally requires an appraisal to show fair market value for the property involved. We empathize that in times like this, ordering an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, often the date of death differs from the date the appraisal is ordered. Our company is comfortable with the procedures and requirements obligatory to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms our staff to confidentiality, assuring the fullest degree of discretion for you.
