Commonly, settling an estate requires an extensive appraisal report to show market value for the home to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We know that in this time of loss, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, sometimes the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is required. D.C. Appraisal Service assures that we are comfortable with the procedures and requirements needed by the federal and Massachusetts revenue agencies to produce 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 staff to confidentiality, ensuring the fullest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

Many times, people do not fully understand the need to have an exhaustive appraisal prepared in support of the numbers displayed in tax documents filed with the IRS and Massachusetts state agencies.

An exhaustive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. This level of documentation will clearly demonstrate your claim that the values expressed are well-founded and accurate.

An executor will be overjoyed by a report by D.C. Appraisal Service which will show him solid facts and numbers to work with revenue agencies' requirements. There's no need to worry when getting a report from D.C. Appraisal Service, because we will stand by it no matter what.
