Settling an estate commonly demands an appraisal to ascertain market value for the house therein. We know that in times like this, even thinking about an appraisal report is the furthest thought from your mind. Due to this, often the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is required. Scotco Appraisals assures that our appraisers are knowledgeable about the procedures and requirements needed by the federal and California revenue agencies to supply a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the exact date of death. The ethical obligations listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms our staff to confidentiality, certifying the fullest degree of privacy for you.

The necessity of having an appraisal report when dealing with government agencies to explain income when filing documents is often unknown by most people.

In having a report supported by Scotco Appraisals's professional appraisers, you will have the peace of mind that the numbers provided in the appraisal report will certainly demonstrate to the California agencies that the numbers used are well founded and substantiated.
