Generally, settling an estate necessitates an irrefutable appraisal report to establish market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We empathize that when you lose a loved one, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, now and then the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is ordered. Appraisal Quest assures that our appraisers are comfortable with the procedures and requirements requested by the federal and Pennsylvania revenue agencies to provide a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethical requirements listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms our company to confidentiality, guaranteeing the highest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

People often forget that the IRS requires documents filed to explain the numbers involved in estate sales.

Opinions of value displayed in documents provided to revenue authorities definitely should be supported by a detailed report as to how the appraiser arrived at his conclusions. In having a report supported by Appraisal Quest's expert appraisers, you will have the peace of mind that the numbers displayed in the appraisal report will certainly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.

Having a professional appraisal report from Appraisal Quest gives the executor irrefutable facts and figures to work with in going beyond IRS and Pennsylvania state agency requirements. You need not stress over anything, because Appraisal Quest will be there to support our work if they are ever refuted.
