We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are countless decisions looming, including the status of the home. There are generally two options when it comes to the shared residence - it can be sold and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the shared real estate.
When the purpose of an appraisal is a divorce settlement, it needs a well-established, professional report that is defensible during a trial.
