Estate settlement or “date of death” appraisals are something we specialize in, and we work well with home owners in what can be a difficult time of life. Our goal is to provide a reliable appraisal in a timely manner, and to make the appraisal process as smooth as possible during what is often a stressful time period. We know all the right questions to ask you, and we’ll help guide you through this process. Sometimes we are able to give advice and share experience to help you decide on whether right now is the best time to get the appraisal or not. We’ll give you honest advice based on our experience, and of course we’ll recommend strongly that you listen to your CPA and/or attorney most of all.
About half our work right now deals with estate appraisals. When an estate has a transfer of ownership due to death or inheritance, it is very common for a real estate appraisal to be needed for tax purposes. Sometimes an attorney or accountant will order the appraisal during such a circumstance, while other times a family member or heir will choose an appraiser to work with.
We appraise both single family residential and multi-unit properties within the Greater Sacramento Region. Our primary service areas include the counties of Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, & El Dorado.
