Commonly, settling an estate requires an accurate appraisal report to show fair market value for the property 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, it's expected that you need to take care of your loved ones first. Mark Marsella assures that we are familiar with the procedures and requirements requested by the IRS and CA revenue agencies to provide a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethics provision listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) conforms our appraisers to confidentiality, ensuring the strongest degree of privacy for you and your loved ones.

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

One of the most essential requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in an exhaustive reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. Such a report will certainly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are well-founded and correct.

Mark Marsella will provide an accurate appraisal report, which will give an executor clear facts and figures that will exceed IRS and state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we assure you that we will stand behind the report if it is ever refuted.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is important to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
