  Date of Death:

The owner of a property has died and the property is passing to one or more heirs. The unusual element in property valuations to be used as part of estate tax determinations is that the value estimates are most often made as of the date of the death of the owner. Known as Date of Death, or DOD.

DOD result in the development of a retrospective value opinion; that is, the effective date of the appraisal is prior to the date of the report. This is opposed to a current value opinion, which most appraisers are accustomed to providing, in which the report date and the effective date of the appraisal are contemporaneous. It is generally true that when there is a death, the immediate concern is not the appraisal of the real estate owned by the decedent of the value of the estate. It usually takes some time, months or even longer, before an appraisal is sought in support of an estate tax return. As a result, the value opinions developed by an appraiser are often retrospective.
