Settling an estate generally requires an appraisal to suggest fair market value for the house involved. We empathize that in times like this, even thinking about an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Of course, you have to comfort your loved ones first. Our staff is knowledgeable about the procedures and requirements necessary to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date your loved one passed away. The ethical obligations stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, guaranteeing the fullest degree of discretion for you.

People often forget that the IRS requires reports filed to show the numbers involved in estate sales.

A comprehensive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. This sort of report will clearly substantiate your claim that the numbers displayed within the report are well-founded and accurate.

Metro Appraisals ensures an accurate appraisal, which will provide an executor clear facts and figures that will exceed IRS and revenue agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we assure you that we will stand behind the appraisal if it is ever challenged.

One of the most significant requirements in an appraisal is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in an exhaustive reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion.
