Settling an estate generally requires an appraisal to suggest fair market value for the estate affected. We sympathize that in times like this, acquiring an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, now and then there can be times that the date of an appraisal differs from the time of death. Our staff is comfortable with the procedures and requirements necessary to provide a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our appraisers to confidentiality, ensuring the highest degree of discretion for you and your family.

People often forget that the IRS needs information filed to support the numbers involved in estate sales.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is necessary to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. In having a report backed by Anderson Appraisal, LLC's professional staff, you will have the peace of mind that the numbers provided in the appraisal report will clearly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.

Having a professional appraisal report from Anderson Appraisal, LLC gives the executor solid facts and figures to work with in going beyond IRS and TX state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we assure you that we will stand behind the report if it is ever refuted.

One of the most significant requirements in an appraisal is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a comprehensive reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion.
