Settling an estate commonly requires an appraisal to establish fair market value for the property involved. It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. So, there's a chance the time an appraisal is ordered will not match the date of death. Geist & Associates assures that our staff are comfortable with the procedures and requirements requested by revenue services to perform 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 requirements stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes us to confidentiality, guaranteeing the highest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.

Most of the time people do not fully understand the importance in having a detailed real estate appraisal supplied in support of the numbers being used in tax documents filed with revenue authorities.

Opinions of value shown in documents filed with the revenue authorities definitely should be backed by an accurate report as to how the appraiser arrived at his conclusions. A report of this caliber will certainly substantiate your claim that the numbers provided within the report are well-founded and accurate.

Geist & Associates ensures an detailed report, which will give an executor definite facts and numbers that will meet IRS and state agency requirements. You need not be concerned over anything, because Geist & Associates will be there to stand by our work if they are ever refuted.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
