Generally, settling an estate requires an extensive appraisal report to acquire fair market value for the home to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We sympathize that in times like this, even thinking about an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, it is possible that the date of death differs from the time the appraisal is ordered. Our professional staff is knowledgeable about the systems and requirements necessary to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms our staff to confidentiality, certifying the highest degree of privacy for you.

All too often, people do not fully comprehend the importance in having a detailed appraisal produced in support of the numbers displayed in tax documents filed with the IRS and PA state agencies.

One of the most important requirements in an appraisal report is an appraiser-backed opinion of value in a comprehensive reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the PA agencies that the numbers used are well-founded and substantiated.

Central Appraisal Services guarantees an detailed appraisal report, which will provide an executor accurate facts and figures that will meet IRS and 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 challenged.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
