Settling an estate most often requires an appraisal to suggest fair market value for the house in question. It's understandable that thinking about an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Because of this, now and then there will be times that the effective date of an appraisal deviates from the date of your loss. Our professional staff is accustomed to the systems and requirements obligatory to provide a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date your loved one passed away. The ethical requirements listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us to confidentiality, providing the highest degree of discretion for you and your family.
