Settling an estate generally requires an appraisal to acquire fair market value for the residential property therein. It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. Of course, you have to be there for your loved ones first. Midwest Appraisal and Consulting assures that our staff are accustomed to the procedures and requirements needed by the IRS and MI revenue agencies to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethics provision explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, guaranteeing the highest degree of discretion for you and your family.

People often forget that the IRS needs information filed to support the numbers involved in estate sales.

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

Having a professional appraisal from Midwest Appraisal and Consulting gives the executor undeniable facts and figures to work with in meeting IRS and MI state agency requirements. You need not be concerned over anything, because we will be there to support our reports if they are ever challenged.

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