Commonly, settling an estate necessitates an detailed appraisal report to establish fair market value for the house to the satisfaction of the parties involved. It's understandable that thinking about getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, it is possible that the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is required. Our staff is familiar with the practices and requirements needed to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date your loved one passed away. The ethical obligations listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our staff to confidentiality, ensuring the highest degree of discretion for you.

In having a report supported by Anderson & Associates's professional staff, you will have the knowledge that the numbers shown in the appraisal report will definitely demonstrate to the WA agencies that the numbers used are well founded and correct.
