Usually, settling an estate requires an irrefutable appraisal report to acquire fair market value for the home to the satisfaction of the parties involved. It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, sometimes the time of death differs from the time the appraisal is requested. We are comfortable with the practices and requirements needed to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethical obligations listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our company to confidentiality, guaranteeing the fullest degree of privacy for all parties involved.

All too often, people do not fully appreciate the demand to have a complete appraisal report prepared in support of the numbers shown in general documents filed with revenue authorities.

One of the most essential 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 Ascension Appraisal's expert appraisers, you will have the peace of mind that the numbers provided in the report will clearly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are well founded and substantiated.

Having a professional appraisal from Ascension Appraisal gives the executor solid facts and figures to work with in meeting IRS and MA state agency requirements. There's no need to worry when getting a report from us, because we will stand by it no matter what.

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