Usually, settling an estate requires an detailed appraisal report to determine fair market value for the house to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We know that in this time of loss, ordering an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, often the date of death differs from the time the appraisal is ordered. We are knowledgeable about the practices and requirements necessary to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethical obligations listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us to confidentiality, certifying the fullest degree of privacy for all parties involved.
People often forget that the IRS needs information filed to support the numbers involved in estate sales.
One of the most essential requirements in a report is an appraiser-backed opinion of value in an exhaustive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. This sort of report will definitely show your claim that the numbers expressed within the report are well-founded and accurate.
Having a professional appraisal report from O'Brist Appraisal, Inc. gives the executor undeniable facts and figures to work with in going beyond IRS and IL state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we will always be there to stand behind the appraisal report if it is ever challenged.
