Settling an estate generally depends on an appraisal to acquire fair market value for the home therein. We know that in times like this, even thinking about an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. So, we understand that the date an appraisal is requested will differ the date of death. James Earp Appraisal Service assures that we are knowledgeable about the procedures and requirements needed by the IRS and NC revenue agencies to produce a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date your loved one passed away. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our company to confidentiality, guaranteeing the fullest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

Often, people do not fully fathom the importance in having an exhaustive real estate appraisal produced in support of the numbers displayed in general documents filed with revenue authorities.

One of the most necessary requirements in an appraisal is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a detailed reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. In having a report supported by James Earp Appraisal Service's expert staff, you will have the peace of mind that the numbers shown in the report will definitely demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are well founded and substantiated.

James Earp Appraisal Service ensures an well-founded appraisal, which will give an executor accurate facts and numbers that will exceed IRS and revenue agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we are there to stand behind the appraisal if it is ever refuted.
