Settling an estate commonly demands an appraisal to determine fair market value for the residential property affected. It's understandable that thinking about an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Because of this, now and then there can be times that the effective date of an appraisal deviates from the date of your loss. Our staff is comfortable with the procedures and requirements necessary to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us to confidentiality, assuring the strongest degree of privacy for you and your loved ones.
