There are required needs for everyone; we cater to these requirements and are familiar to working with all parties involved. We create appraisal reports that surpass the necessities of the legal system and other agencies.

Contact us as soon as possible to discuss your unique estate appraisal needs and how we can put our knowledge to work for you.

Settling an estate most often depends on an appraisal to determine fair market value for the estate therein. We know that in this time of loss, acquiring an appraisal is the furthest thought from your mind. So, it's possible the date an appraisal report is ordered will not match the date of death. Our company is accustomed to the procedures and requirements needed to supply a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and fair market value estimate matching the exact date you suffered the loss of your loved one. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) attunes our appraisers to confidentiality, guaranteeing the strongest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

Many times, people do not fully acknowledge the demand to have an exhaustive appraisal produced in support of the numbers being used in general documents filed with the IRS and AZ state agencies.

One of the most necessary requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a comprehensive explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. In having a report supported by Desert Sky Appraisers's professional staff, you will have the knowledge that the numbers displayed in the appraisal will certainly demonstrate to the IRS that the numbers used are well founded and correct.

Having a professional report from Desert Sky Appraisers gives the executor definite facts and figures to work with in going beyond IRS and AZ state agency requirements. You need not be concerned over anything, because Desert Sky Appraisers will be there to support our reports if they are ever challenged.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is necessary to support the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
