Handling a divorce? Altemeier Appraisals has the experience you need.
We know that divorce is never easy. There are countless decisions that have to be settled, including what to do with the house. There are generally two choices when discussing common 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 should order an appraisal of the residence.
