Settling an estate commonly requires an appraisal to suggest fair market value for the estate involved. It's understandable that thinking about an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Of course, you have to comfort your loved ones first. Community Appraisal assures that our appraisers are accustomed to the procedures and requirements requested by the IRS and MI revenue agencies to produce a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethics provision stated within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, providing the highest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.

Most of the time people do not fully fathom the demand to have a full appraisal report prepared in support of the numbers being used in general documents filed with the IRS and MI state agencies.

A comprehensive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is important to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. Such a report will certainly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are accurate and correct.

An executor will be over-joyed by a report by Community Appraisal which will give him solid facts and figures to deal with revenue agencies' requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we are there to stand behind the appraisal report if it is ever challenged.

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