Settling an estate usually depends on an appraisal to show fair market value for the property therein. It's understandable that thinking about getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, there is a chance that the date of death differs from the date the appraisal is ordered. Our professional staff is accustomed to the systems and requirements necessary to provide 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 strongest degree of discretion for all parties involved.
