Settling an estate most often demands an appraisal to determine fair market value for the estate in question. We understand that in times like this, ordering an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, often the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is required. Our company is comfortable with the procedures and requirements obligatory to produce a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethics provision explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms our appraisers to confidentiality, certifying the strongest degree of privacy for you.
