You refer to certified value. Only a certified, licensed real estate appraiser can provide you a certified opinion of value, especially back in 2007. The only reason this is usually needed is in divorce settlements, probating of estates, etc. where the incident date is when the values are taken into account.

If it is not for legal purposes as mentioned above, you may be able to use a Broker's Price Opinion Letter. Any licensed Realtor can provide that for you. If you would like a Price Opinion Letter, please feel free to call me. Good luck with your situation.

All the best,

Hello Riximines,

Don't get a bpo, from me or anyoneone else. Appraisal is the only thing that is going to have any legal meaning, and your stated need "inherritance tax puposes" is certainly a circumstance needing things done the right proper way. That way is an appraisal.

It's for my mother's home. She passed away in 2007 and I need this information for inheritence tax purposes.

I Agree with Michael,

Get a licensed Appraiser. I am curious why you would need to price a home in 2007.
Do you think you got hustled on a purchase?
