Commonly, settling an estate requires an extensive appraisal report to establish fair market value for the property to the satisfaction of the parties involved. It's understandable that ordering an appraisal is the farthest thought from your mind. So, it's possible the date an appraisal report is ordered will be different from the date of death.

A report of this caliber will clearly show the evidence that the numbers provided within the report are well-founded and accurate.
