Settling an estate usually depends on an appraisal to establish fair market value for the house involved. It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, now and then the date of death differs from the date the appraisal is ordered. Our staff is accustomed to the practices and requirements needed to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date your loved one passed away. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our appraisers to confidentiality, certifying the highest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

Many people do not understand that the IRS requires reports filed to explain the numbers involved in estate sales.

One of the most essential requirements in an appraisal is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a comprehensive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. This sort of report will clearly substantiate the evidence that the numbers within within the report are well-founded and accurate.

An executor will be satisfied by an appraisal report by Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. which will provide him solid facts and figures to deal with the IRS and AL state agencies' requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we will always be there to stand behind the appraisal if it is ever challenged.
