Settling an estate is often stressful, but a very important job. As an executor you have been entrusted to carry out the wishes of the deceased as swiftly and with as much dignity as possible. You can count on us to act quickly and with as much empathy to the feelings of everyone involved.
Part of Agape Appraisal's goal is to provide top-notch, ethical appraisals that lawyers can depend on. There are specific needs for everyone; we realize these requirements and are familiar to dealing with all parties involved. We construct appraisal reports that surpass the requirements of the courts and various agencies.
Settling an estate commonly requires an appraisal to ascertain fair market value for the home affected. We understand that when you lose a loved one, ordering an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, often there will be times that the effective date of an appraisal report differs from the time of death. Our professional staff is familiar with the practices and requirements obligatory to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethical obligations stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our staff to confidentiality, providing the highest degree of privacy for all parties involved.
All too often, people do not fully realize the necessity in having a full appraisal report prepared in support of the numbers being used in general documents filed with revenue authorities.
An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is important to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. In having a report backed by Agape Appraisal's professional appraisers, you will have the knowledge that the numbers provided in the appraisal report will definitely demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are well founded and correct.
Agape Appraisal provides an detailed appraisal report, which will give an executor clear facts and figures that will meet IRS and state agency requirements. You need not be concerned over anything, because we will be there to back up our work if they are ever challenged.
