How Do You Estimate a Home's Value?
An appraisal is a type of investigation into the law of probabilities with respect to valuation. Through our experience, training and integrity, our appraisers are able to project the activities of buyers and sellers in the marketplace into an estimation of value. In reaching a conclusion, comparison of features usually involves adjustments due to the individuality and uniqueness of each. The opinion of value is the result of a thorough processional analysis of a vast quantity of data.
What is a Date of Death Appraisal?
Definition "Date of Death" / Retrospective Value is generally defined as:
“A value opinion effective as of a specified historical date. The term does not define a type of value. Instead, it identifies a value opinion as being effective at some specific prior date. Value as of a historical date is frequently sought in connection with property tax appeals, damage models, lease renegotiation, deficiency judgments, estate tax, and condemnation. Inclusion of the type of value with this term is appropriate, e.g., “retrospective market value opinion.”
