Settling an estate most often demands an appraisal to establish market value for the property therein. It's understandable that ordering getting an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. So, we understand that the time an appraisal is requested will be different from the date of death. Our professional staff is knowledgeable about the systems and requirements needed to provide a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date of death. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our appraisers to confidentiality, guaranteeing the strongest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.

All too often, people do not fully appreciate the demand to have a true appraisal prepared in support of the numbers shown in general documents filed with the IRS and Maine state agencies.

One of the most significant requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in an exhaustive reason as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. In having a report supported by JM Appraisal Services's professional staff, you will have the understanding that the numbers displayed in the report will clearly demonstrate to the Maine agencies that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.

Having a professional appraisal from JM Appraisal Services gives the executor irrefutable facts and figures to work with in meeting IRS and Maine state agency requirements. You need not stress over anything, because JM Appraisal Services will be there to support our reports if they are ever refuted.
