Usually, settling an estate requires an extensive appraisal report to establish market value for the house to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We understand that in times like this, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. So, there's a chance the time an appraisal report is ordered will be different from the date of death. Bay Area Appraisal Services Inc. assures that we are familiar with the procedures and requirements needed by the federal and Florida revenue agencies to perform a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, ensuring the highest degree of privacy for you.

People often forget that the IRS requires information filed to show the numbers involved in estate sales.

Opinions of value displayed in documents filed with revenue authorities definitely should be backed by an exhaustive report as to how the appraiser acquired his conclusions. Such a report will certainly demonstrate to the Florida agencies that the numbers used are well-founded and substantiated.

Having a professional report from Bay Area Appraisal Services Inc. gives the executor undeniable facts and figures to work with in meeting IRS and Florida state agency requirements. There's no need to be stressed out when getting a report from us, because we will stand by it no matter what.
