Usually, settling an estate requires an detailed appraisal report to show fair market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We empathize that in times like this, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, often the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is requested. A. M. Appraisals assures that our staff are comfortable with the procedures and requirements needed by revenue services to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethics provision explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our appraisers to confidentiality, assuring the highest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.

All too often, people do not fully acknowledge the need to have an exhaustive real estate appraisal prepared in support of the numbers displayed in tax documents filed with the IRS and SC state agencies.

A comprehensive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is necessary to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. In having a report supported by A. M. Appraisals's expert appraisers, you will have the knowledge that the numbers provided in the report will clearly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.

Having a professional appraisal report from A. M. Appraisals gives the executor irrefutable facts and figures to work with in meeting IRS and SC state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we assure you that we will stand behind the appraisal report if it is ever refuted.

One of the most important requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in an exhaustive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion.
