Usually, settling an estate requires an accurate appraisal report to show fair market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved. It's understandable that thinking about an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. So, there's a chance the time an appraisal report is needed will deviate the date of death. Our staff is knowledgeable about 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 ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) keeps us to confidentiality, providing the highest degree of privacy for all parties involved.

People often forget that the IRS needs reports filed to explain the numbers involved in estate sales.

One of the most significant requirements in a report is an appraiser-backed opinion of value in an exhaustive reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. Such a report will definitely demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are well-founded and substantiated.

Signature Appraisals ensures an well-founded appraisal, which will provide an executor solid facts and numbers that will exceed IRS and revenue agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we are there to stand behind the report if it is ever challenged.

A comprehensive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is important to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
