Settling an estate most often requires an appraisal to determine fair market value for the property in question. We sympathize that in times like this, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, often there are times that the date of an appraisal report differs from the date of your loss. Astute Appraisals, Inc. assures that our appraisers are comfortable with the procedures and requirements needed by the IRS and MD revenue agencies to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date your loved one passed away. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, providing the fullest degree of discretion for you and your family.
