Cullen Appraisal cannot be praised enough! I made an inquiry to three different appraisal companies in a row asking about the fee and the timeframe. Within just one minute I was contacted by Jessica from Cullen Appraisal! And this responsiveness was not just a “hook”; it held true throughout the process. Whether I called, texted, or e-mailed, she was on it immediately. And there were two bonuses for me: 1) Cullen Appraisal’s fee was BY FAR the most economical and 2) I needed my home appraisal asap and Tom Cullen was at my door just six days later, two days before Christmas. He was both professional and patient: explaining in detail the complex process by which his final figure would be derived and making sure that I truly understood his answers to my myriad questions. Thank you, Jessica and thank you Tom.

When should a date of death appraisal be done?

A date of death appraisal should be done when the executor or administrator of an estate needs to determine the value of the assets for probate or estate tax purposes. It is typically done as close to the date of death as possible.

What does FMV on date of death appraisal mean?

FMV stands for Fair Market Value, and it refers to the value of an asset in an open and competitive market. In the context of a date of death appraisal, it refers to the value of the assets in the estate on the date of the decedent's death.

What is the purpose of a date of death appraisal?

The purpose of a date of death appraisal is to determine the fair market value (FMV) of the assets in the estate on the date of the decedent's death. This information is used for probate and estate tax purposes, and helps ensure that the estate is properly valued for distribution to the beneficiaries.

What happens if the market has changed since the date of death?

If the market has changed since the date of death, the value of the assets may be different from the value determined by the date of death appraisal. In these cases, a new appraisal may be necessary to accurately reflect the current market value.
