Usually, settling an estate necessitates an accurate appraisal report of a home's market value on the date of death.  This is rarely a priority for the recently bereaved, but don't worry about the lapse of time.  Our staff is knowledgeable about the systems and requirements necessary to provide a retrospective appraisal, to match market value with the date of death.  

Most of the time, the value of a detailed appraisal supporting figures used in officlal tax documents is not fully appreciated.  Opinions of value recorded in documents filed with the IRS and Connecticut's DRS definitely should be backed by an accurate report as to how the appraiser arrived at his conclusions.  Figures displayed in a Budkofsky Appraisal report will clearly demonstrate to the authorities that the numbers the executor reported are accurate and correct.

We want to put your mind at ease.  Budkofsky Appraisal Co will be there to back up our reports if they are ever challenged.  You should also keep in mind that the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) holds our appraisers to the strictest standards of confidentiality, certifying the fullest degree of discretion for you.  You need not worry about anything.
