Usually, settling an estate requires a detailed appraisal report to suggest market value for the home to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We sympathize that in this time of loss, acquiring an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. So, we understand that the date an appraisal is requested will deviate the date of death. Our professional staff is familiar with the procedures and requirements needed to produce a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date your loved one passed away. The ethical requirements explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, ensuring the highest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.

People often forget that the IRS requires documents filed to support the numbers involved in estate sales.

Opinions of value used in documents provided to the IRS and Indiana agencies definitely should be supported by a detailed report as to how the appraiser came to his conclusions. In having a report supported by Home Guide Realty Services's professional appraisers, you will have the understanding that the numbers provided in the appraisal will certainly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are accurate and correct.

An executor will be ecstatic by a report by Home Guide Realty Services which will provide him undeniable facts and numbers to cooperate with any legal agency's requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we assure you that we will stand behind the appraisal report if it is ever challenged.
