Estate Settlements

Appraisal Services for Estate Settlements
The need for appraisals for estate and probate purposes is expected to increase. Estimates of the billions of dollars to be inherited by baby boomers are regularly featured in newspapers and the financial press. Much of those assets are in real estate. With the recent popularity of living trusts, and sophisticated tax avoidance methods for affluent individuals, appraisals are needed both for tax planning purposes prior to a property owner’s death, and for settling an estate after death.
