Settling an estate most often demands an appraisal to acquire fair market value for the property affected. It's understandable that thinking about getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Due to this, sometimes the time of death differs from the date the appraisal is requested. Crest Appraisal Services assures that our staff are knowledgeable about the procedures and requirements requested by revenue services 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 listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms our staff to confidentiality, ensuring the highest degree of privacy for you and your loved ones.

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

A comprehensive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is required to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. In having a report backed by Crest Appraisal Services's professional staff, you will have the knowledge that the numbers provided in the report will definitely demonstrate to the WA agencies that the numbers used are well founded and correct.

An executor will be satisfied by an appraisal by Crest Appraisal Services which will show him solid facts and numbers to cooperate with the IRS and WA state agencies' requirements. You need not be concerned over anything, because Crest Appraisal Services will be there to support our appraisals if they are ever challenged.

One of the most essential requirements in a report is an appraiser-backed opinion of value in an exhaustive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion.
