Fair Market Value Appraisals 101

Establishing a value prior to an estate sale

Fair Market Value Appraisals are non-certified. To illustrate, family members sometimes need or want a value of a homes contents.  That is a fair market value appraisal, specifically.  However, it is not for insurance or replacement value, as you would think. A certified appraisal is what fills that need.

Fair Market Appraisals can helped alleviate problems in some situations

Family members sometimes want to know the value of the items each family member chooses to keep.
Accordingly, a fair market appraisal can determine that. In brief, a fair market value appraisal can balance the scales and alleviate conflicts that sometimes family members can enter into. As you can imagine, family dynamics vary. It is wise to offer a Fair Market Value Appraisal if it seems necessary.
