Usually, settling an estate necessitates an accurate appraisal report to show fair market value for the house to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We understand that in this time of loss, ordering an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Of course, you have to take care of your family first. Piscitelli Appraisal Service assures that our appraisers are comfortable 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 your loved one passed away. The ethics provision explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, ensuring the highest degree of discretion for you and your family.

Many people do not understand that the IRS requires information filed to explain the numbers involved in estate sales.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is important to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. Such a report will certainly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.

An executor will be satisfied by an appraisal report by Piscitelli Appraisal Service which will show him solid facts and figures 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.

Opinions of value shown in documents filed with the revenue authorities definitely should be backed by an exhaustive report as to how the appraiser arrived at his conclusions.
