We understand that divorce is never easy. There are many decisions that have to be finalized, including the status of the shared residence. There are generally two choices when it comes to common real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the mutual real estate.
A divorce appraisal should include a well-established, authoritative report that can be supported during a trial. When you order an appraisal from Edwards Appraisal Group, you are assured the best in service with professional courtesy and well-supported conclusions. Taking into account the sensitive conditions of a divorce situation is somewhat matter-of-fact for us.
