Retrospective Appraisals



estate appraiser




For estate tax purposes or disposition of the assets of a decedent, a "date of death" valuation is often required. 
  We will provide this service with sensitivity, accuracy and professionalism.


These are known as Retrospective Appraisals


Attorneys, accountants & executors trust Burton & Company Appraisals for "date of death" valuations; they recognize that we have the local experience required to effectively research comparable sales for a past date appraisal.


We have MLS archives and historical property information. We maintain a large database of appraisal files going back several years to provide additional comparable sales data. 


We are bound by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and complete reports with confidentiality and professionalism.


Service Notes


The report provided will be in the format the taxing authorities and courts expect.


Your report will be fully legal in a court of law. 


We can do rush date of death appraisals. 


We can base the appraisal on the condition of the property of an earlier date, say prior to a kitchen remodel. We have used dated Christmas photos to document the condition of a home at a certain time in the past.


Please contact us for a quick fee quote.  Please provide the property address and the date of death.
