Restoring Value: Retrospective Fair Market Valuations for Completely Destroyed Structures.

In the aftermath of disasters, property owners often face the daunting task of determining the value of structures that have been completely destroyed. While appraisals are commonly associated with pre-damage valuation, they play a crucial role post-disaster as well.

Insurance companies frequently commission property appraisals to ascertain retrospective fair market valuations for destroyed structures, aiding in the assessment of replacement costs through a cost approach methodology.

When a property is ravaged, the initial appraisal becomes a retrospective exploration to quantify losses and establish fair market valuations alongside replacement expenses. Should property owners contest the findings of an insurance appraisal, a retrospective appraisal with a pre-damage date is pivotal to document the property’s former worth.

Furthermore, appraisals are indispensable for IRS claims, litigation, and tax purposes, especially since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has restricted deductions for non-natural disaster-related casualties. Such appraisals necessitate both pre- and post-disaster dates to delineate the property’s evolving market value accurately.

But how does one appraise a home that no longer exists? Here lies the expertise of seasoned property appraisers. Extensive research is fundamental in establishing retrospective values, drawing upon public and personal records alike.

Retrospective fair market valuations hinge on data from the day preceding the disaster, incorporating insights from tax records, zoning permits, and real estate listings. Personal records, such as photographs and family documents, also contribute to this intricate process.

Property owners play a pivotal role in furnishing pertinent information to appraisers. Comprehensive documentation of purchases, renovations, and upgrades streamlines the valuation process and alleviates post-disaster burdens.
