Generally, settling an estate requires an accurate appraisal report to determine fair market value for the home to the satisfaction of the parties involved. It's understandable that thinking about an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. So, we understand that the time an appraisal report is requested will not match the date of death. Our company is knowledgeable about the practices and requirements necessary to perform 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 our company to confidentiality, providing the fullest degree of discretion for you and your family.
