Settling an estate commonly requires an appraisal to determine fair market value for the residential property affected. We sympathize that in times like this, ordering an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, now and then there can be times that the effective date of an appraisal report differs from the time of death. Anderson & Associates assures that our staff are accustomed to the procedures and requirements requested by revenue services to supply 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 explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, providing the strongest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.

The importance of owning a real estate appraisal when cooperating with government agencies to prove income when filing documents is often overlooked by most people.

Opinions of value displayed in documents provided to the revenue authorities definitely should be supported by an accurate report as to how the appraiser came to his conclusions. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are accurate and correct.

Having a professional appraisal from Anderson & Associates gives the executor solid facts and figures to work with in meeting IRS and WA state agency 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.

One of the most essential requirements in an appraisal report is an appraiser-backed opinion of value in a detailed reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion.
