Estate Appraisals / Date of Death Appraisals

Settling an estate can be a difficult task. As the trustee, you have many things you need to do and we want you to know that you can count on us to act quickly and with as much sympathy and confidentiality as possible.

When an estate transfers ownership because of a death or inheritance, a real estate appraisal is usually needed for tax purposes and possibly to determine a listing price for the property. The trustee is typically directed by their attorney or accountant to hire an appraiser.

That's where ordering an estate appraisal or date of death appraisal from Landmark Appraisal & Realty Group can help you. We are very familiar and experienced with these procedures and promise you will be in good hands.

The effective date of an estate appraisal or date of death appraisal is typically the date of death. This means that the appraiser values the property as of that date – typically one to six months prior – not today's date. This is the most important distinction between an estate/date of death appraisal and any other type of appraisal. 

Our goal is to make this process as painless as possible for you. By hiring Landmark Appraisal & Realty Group, Inc., you are assured that you will be able to provide the executor an appraisal that will exceed the IRS and Florida state agency requirements and guidelines. We have extensive knowledge and experience in providing high quality estate and date of death valuations. Numerous attorneys, accountants and financial planners have come to rely on us for their estate and date of death appraisals in South Florida.
