Involved in a divorce? Astute Appraisals, Inc. has the experience you're looking for.
We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are countless choices looming, including the status of the house. There are generally two choices when discussing 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 would find it in their best interest to get an appraisal of the residence.
