Settling an estate usually depends on an appraisal to acquire fair market value for the residential property in question. It's understandable that thinking about getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, sometimes the time of death differs from the time the appraisal is needed. MacBride Appraisal assures that we are familiar with the procedures and requirements requested by the IRS and CA revenue agencies to produce a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethical requirements listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, certifying the highest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

Most of the time people do not fully appreciate the need to have an exhaustive appraisal report prepared in support of the numbers being used in tax documents filed with the IRS.

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. Such a report will clearly demonstrate to the CA agencies that the numbers used are accurate and correct.

MacBride Appraisal will provide an accurate report, which will give an executor solid facts and numbers that will meet IRS and state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we will always be there to stand behind the appraisal report if it is ever refuted.

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