It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. So, there's a chance the time an appraisal report is needed will not match the date of death. Our professional staff is comfortable with the practices and requirements needed to provide a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethics provision explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our company to confidentiality, certifying the highest degree of discretion for you and your family.
