The Importance of Asset Appraisals

Our professional appraisers are trained to reject any attempt to influence the appraisal or opinion of value and to remain independent, impartial, and objective. There are many reasons why it’s important to place a cash value on non-cash assets. These include:

  1. If the will or intestacy law, if there is no will requires the estate to be evenly divided or divided by percentages, the court and the executor must know the estate’s total value to divide it properly.
  2. If assets need to be sold to pay off the deceased’s outstanding debts, then fair market value on the assets must be obtained first.
  3. The total cash value of the estate determines whether federal or state estate tax is owed.
  4. If the estate’s total value is below a certain threshold, it may qualify for summary, or abbreviated, probate proceedings. Many states offer a shortened probate process for small estates.
  5. Tax law assigns inherited assets a new tax basis of the value on date of death. Beneficiaries need to know this amount to properly calculate capital gains taxes if they sell those assets in the future.
  6. Many aspects of the probate process calls for knowledge of the cash value of estate assets. The executor is required to have the non-cash assets appraised as part of that process.

Estate Settlements and Divorce Settlements

It’s our goal at U.S. Coins and Jewelry to produce trustworthy appraisals that attorneys and accountants have come to depend on. Having a professional appraisal report from U.S. Coins and Jewelry gives your client undeniable facts and figures to work with. Our reports assure peace of mind to everyone involved because we assure you that we will stand behind the report if it is ever refuted.

The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) contains an ethics provision that we hold by to conduct the highest amount of confidentiality, resulting in the utmost discretion to ensure both parties are fully aware of the true market value of the property, regardless of the circumstances.

Divorce settlements can be a heartbreaking ordeal for the parties involved since it is complicated by the challenging decision of who gets individual pieces of property. When the reason for an appraisal is the division of assets, it should include a well-established, professional report that will hold up to a judge.

U.S. Coins and Jewelry pledges to give you the very best in service with well-supported conclusions because we understand how to handle the delicate needs of a divorce situation.
