Estate Planning or Resolution
The Value of Your Assets.
A professional estate appraisal plays an important role in protecting the value of your assets. An accurate assessment of value is essential for estate planning or settlement, dividing assets in a divorce, buying insurance or property disposition. A Geolat estate appraisal ensures that your property will be evaluated with complete confidentiality, care and accuracy. Every estate appraisal report from Geolat Companies is well-researched and documented, and conforms to the standards put forth by the American Society of Appraisers as well as the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
Estate tax appraisals are necessary for federal tax purposes, or for state probate in the execution of a will. Probate can be a particularly difficult and protracted process without adequate estate planning. Whether you’re seeing to your own future needs or are representing a law firm, accounting firm or a loved one, an accurate appraisal is an important first step in the planning process. Geolat Companies will take the time and do the research necessary to provide you with a detailed, precise and current estate valuation.
