Settling an estate most often demands an appraisal to establish fair market value for the house therein. We understand that in times like this, acquiring an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. So, there's a chance the time an appraisal is needed will not match the date of death. Our professional staff is familiar with the systems and requirements obligatory to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes us to confidentiality, providing the fullest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.

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

A comprehensive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is important to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. In having a report backed by Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc.'s professional appraisers, you will have the knowledge that the numbers shown in the report will clearly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are well founded and substantiated.

Having a professional report from Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc. gives the executor undeniable facts and figures to work with in exceeding IRS and GA state agency requirements. There's no need to have anything but peace of mind when getting a report from Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc., because we will support it no matter what.

Opinions of value shown in documents provided to the revenue authorities definitely should be backed by a comprehensive report as to how the appraiser acquired his conclusions.
