One of the most necessary requirements in a report is an appraiser-supported opinion of value in a detailed explanation as to how the appraiser came to his conclusion. In having a report supported by J.S.

J.S. Appraisals, Inc. guarantees an substantiated report, which will give an executor clear facts and numbers that will exceed IRS and state agency requirements. It assures peace of mind to everyone concerned because we assure you that we will stand behind the report if it is ever refuted.

An accurate report showing the appraiser's opinion of value is necessary to back the methods the appraiser used to come to his conclusions.
