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 time the appraisal is ordered. Our professional staff is comfortable with the procedures and requirements necessary to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date your loved one passed away.
