Dividing assets?We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are countless issues looming, including the status of the house. There are generally two choices when it comes to the house - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should commission an appraisal of the residence.
When the reason for an appraisal is a divorce settlement, it must have a well-supported, expert appraisal document that is defensible in court. When you order an appraisal from Coastal Property Appraisals, you are assured the best in service with courtesy and well-supported conclusions.
