Settling an estate generally depends on an appraisal to ascertain fair market value for the property therein. It's understandable that ordering getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, sometimes the time of death differs from the time the appraisal is required. Our company is familiar with the systems and requirements needed to provide 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 our appraisers to confidentiality, guaranteeing the fullest degree of discretion for you and your family.
