Settling an estate most often requires an appraisal to acquire fair market value for the house therein. We sympathize that when you lose a loved one, acquiring an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, now and then there are times that the effective date of an appraisal report differs from the date of your loss. Astute Appraisals, Inc. assures that our appraisers are familiar with the procedures and requirements requested by the IRS and MD revenue agencies to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethical requirements listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms our appraisers to confidentiality, providing the fullest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

Many times, people do not fully acknowledge the need to have a complete appraisal report prepared in support of the numbers being used in tax documents filed with revenue authorities.

One of the most important requirements in an appraisal report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a detailed explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.

An executor will be ecstatic by an appraisal report by Astute Appraisals, Inc. which will give him undeniable facts and figures to work with any legal agency's requirements. You need not stress over anything, because we will be there to support our work if they are ever refuted.

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