Date of Death Appraisal

Date of Death Valuations - Scottsdale Arizona

A Date of Death Appraisal can assist with determining estate tax liability and disposition of assets under a will or in probate.

Appraisal of What the Property Was Worth on a Date in the Past

Varied situations can arise that need an appraisal of property value at a date some time ago, usually due to the death of the homeowner.

A Date of Death Appraisal - or Date of Death Valuation - is often needed in these cases.

Real property isn't like publicly traded stock or other items because it fluctuates in value, and no historical public data is available. Because of this, it's important to hire an appraiser with expertise and experience in your local area to correctly evaluate past comparables and market trends to give you an accurate appraisal valuation.
