If you are working through a divorce, choose Astute Appraisals, Inc. to provide a realistic value of residence to be divided.
We realize that divorce is never easy. There are many choices that have to be resolved, including what to do with the shared residence. There are generally two alternatives when discussing common real estate - it can be sold and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to order an appraisal of the residence.
