The loss of a loved one is a hard time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often requires an appraisal to
establish Market Value for the residential property involved. Most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to manage these
matters, unlike wealthier individuals. A home or other property often makes up an unequal share of the total estate value, so understanding the
true value of the real estate at hand is of essential importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've gotten an honest deal.
