Settling an estate generally depends on an appraisal to determine fair market value for the property therein. It's understandable that thinking about getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Because of this, often there can be times that the date of an appraisal report differs from the date of your loss. VanderWaal Appraisal Group assures that our appraisers are accustomed to the procedures and requirements requested by revenue services to produce a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethical obligations listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) keeps us to confidentiality, providing the fullest degree of discretion for you.
