Estate Appraisals

Settling an estate is an important and sometimes stressful job. As an executor you have been entrusted to carry out the wishes of the deceased as swiftly and exactly as possible. You can count on us to act quickly and with sensitivity to the feelings of everyone involved.

We understand you may be dealing with other parties and we need provide appraisal reports that not only meets the requirements of the courts and various agencies and family members.

Settling an estate usually requires an appraisal to establish Fair Market Value for the residential property involved. Often, the date of death differs from the date the appraisal is requested. We are familiar 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. 

All too often, people do not fully appreciate the need to have a detailed real estate appraisal prepared in support of the numbers being used in documents filed with revenue authorities.

As a professional appraiser I give the executor solid facts and figures to work with in meeting IRS, state agency not to mention family requirements. Assures peace of mind to everyone concerned I can provide that type of appraisal service to you.
