Usually, settling an estate requires a clear appraisal report to suggest market value for the home to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We know that in times like this, ordering an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. So, we understand that the time an appraisal report is requested will not match the date of death. Michael Smith Appraisals, Inc assures that we are knowledgeable about the procedures and requirements needed by revenue services to provide a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) keeps our appraisers to confidentiality, guaranteeing the highest degree of privacy for you and your family.

Many times, people do not fully realize the necessity in having a true appraisal report supplied in support of the numbers used in general documents filed with the IRS.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is important to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. This sort of report will certainly show the evidence that the values presented are well-founded and accurate.

Having a professional appraisal from Michael Smith Appraisals, Inc gives the executor undeniable facts and figures to work with in going beyond IRS and Georgia state agency requirements.
