Settling an estate most often requires an appraisal to determine market value for the residential property affected. It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Because of this, now and then there will be times that the effective date of an appraisal differs from the time of death. Our professional staff is familiar with the procedures and requirements necessary to supply a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethics provision stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, providing the fullest degree of privacy for you.

People often forget that the IRS needs reports filed to explain the numbers involved in estate sales.

Opinions of value used in documents filed with the IRS and California agencies definitely should be supported by an accurate report as to how the appraiser arrived at his conclusions. This sort of report will clearly demonstrate your claim that the values provided are well-founded and accurate.

An executor will be ecstatic by an appraisal report by WalshStreet Appraisals which will give him irrefutable facts and figures to cooperate with the IRS and California state agencies' requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we will always be there to stand behind the report if it is ever refuted.
