Settling an estate most often requires an appraisal to ascertain fair market value for the house therein. It's understandable that thinking about 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 time of death. Elite Appraisal Services assures that our staff are accustomed to the procedures and requirements requested by the IRS and TX 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) keeps our company to confidentiality, certifying the strongest degree of privacy for you and your loved ones.

Often, people do not fully acknowledge the requirement to have a full appraisal prepared in support of the numbers displayed in tax documents filed with revenue authorities.

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