Our professional staff is familiar with the procedures and requirements obligatory to supply a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and market value estimate matching the date your loved one passed away. The ethical obligations explained within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds our staff to confidentiality, assuring the highest degree of discretion for all parties involved.

Many people do not understand that the IRS needs documents filed to support the numbers involved in estate sales.

Having a professional appraisal report from Pendleton Appraisals gives the executor irrefutable facts and figures to work with in exceeding IRS and North Carolina state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we are there to stand behind the report if it is ever refuted.
