Commonly, settling an estate requires an extensive appraisal report to establish fair market value for the house to the satisfaction of the parties involved. We understand that when you lose a loved one, ordering an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. So, we understand that the date an appraisal is requested will differ the date of death. Our company is familiar with the procedures and requirements needed to produce a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our staff to confidentiality, ensuring the strongest degree of discretion for you and your loved ones.

People often forget that the IRS needs reports filed to express the numbers involved in estate sales.

A comprehensive report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is necessary to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions. In having a report supported by The August Group Inc.'s professional appraisers, you will have the knowledge that the numbers displayed in the appraisal report will definitely demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are accurate and substantiated.

Having a professional appraisal from The August Group Inc. gives the executor irrefutable facts and figures to work with in going beyond IRS and MO state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we will always be there to stand behind the appraisal report if it is ever refuted.

One of the most important requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a comprehensive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion.
