Splitting up marital assets?We realize that divorce can be very difficult. There are many choices that have to be finalized, including the fate of the house. There are generally two choices when it comes to real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to order an appraisal of the residence.
A divorce appraisal should include a well-established, professional report that can be supported to a judge. When you order an appraisal from Advantage Appraisal Inc.
