Settling an estate generally demands an appraisal to ascertain fair market value for the home in question. It's understandable that thinking about getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Of course, you need to be there for your family first. Our company is comfortable with the practices and requirements necessary to provide a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, certifying the fullest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

People often forget that the IRS requires documents filed to support the numbers involved in estate sales.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are accurate and correct.

Having a professional appraisal report from Premier Appraisal of SoCal gives the executor undeniable facts and figures to work with in going beyond IRS and CA state agency requirements. You need not worry over anything, because Premier Appraisal of SoCal will be there to back up our appraisals if they are ever refuted.

One of the most essential requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a comprehensive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion.
