Settling an estate generally requires an appraisal to acquire market value for the residential property therein. It's understandable that ordering getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, now and then the date of death differs from the date the appraisal is required. Our staff is familiar with the practices and requirements needed to provide a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethics provision stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, certifying the strongest degree of privacy for you and your family.

Often, people do not fully comprehend the necessity in having a full real estate appraisal prepared in support of the figures displayed in tax documents filed with the IRS.

One of the most necessary requirements in an appraisal is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a detailed reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. This conclusion must support the property definition of Fair Market Value. Your appraiser should be educated and have experience in this specialty valuation product.

Having a professional appraisal from J. Dowdy, Appraisal Consulting gives the executor irrefutable facts and figures to work with in going beyond IRS requirements.
