Commonly, settling an estate requires a clear appraisal report to ascertain market value for the house to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We empathize that in this time of loss, even thinking about an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. Because of this, often there can be times that the effective date of an appraisal deviates from the date of your loss. Our professional staff is knowledgeable about the practices and requirements needed to provide a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the exact date your loved one passed away. The ethical requirements listed within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our company to confidentiality, assuring the strongest degree of discretion for you and your family.

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

William Wood Co. will provide a detailed appraisal report, which will give an executor solid facts and numbers that will meet IRS and revenue agency requirements. You need not be concerned over anything, because William Wood Co. will be there to back up our work if they are ever refuted.
