Settling an estate usually demands an appraisal to establish market value for the property involved. We empathize that in this time of loss, acquiring an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, often the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is ordered. Associate Appraisers of America assures that we are familiar with the procedures and requirements requested by the federal and California revenue agencies to supply a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the exact date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethical requirements explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, certifying the fullest degree of discretion for you and your family.

People often forget that the IRS needs reports filed to explain the numbers involved in estate sales.

One of the most significant requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a comprehensive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. In having a report backed by Associate Appraisers of America's professional staff, you will have the understanding that the numbers displayed in the report will certainly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.

Associate Appraisers of America provides an accurate report, which will give an executor the facts and numbers that will meet the expected IRS and revenue agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we are there to stand behind the report if it is ever refuted.
