Settling an estate most often demands an appraisal to suggest fair market value for the property in question. We know that in this time of loss, ordering an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, there is a chance that the time of death differs from the time the appraisal is ordered. We are comfortable with the systems and requirements obligatory to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date your loved one passed away. The ethics provision stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our staff to confidentiality, providing the strongest degree of discretion for you.
