Retrospective/Date of Death Appraisals
Settling an estate typically requires an appraisal to determine Fair Market Value on the date of death, which can be weeks or months prior to the date the appraisal is requested. This is know as a Retrospective Appraisal.
We are familiar with the requirements necessary to perform a Retrospective Appraisal with an effective date and Fair Market Value estimate matching the date of death.
We will use comparable sales that sold or went into contract in the time frame of the actual date of death.
The executor of the estate will be provided with an accurate value to use in meeting IRS and state requirements. We will stand behind the appraisal throughout the entire process.
We will give an exact fee quote prior to any work completed.
