Divorce is a painful process in which there are many decisions to be made including ‘who’s staying’ and ‘who’s going’ when determining what happens to the house. Often times the home is put up for sale in which the profits are split or otherwise one of the parties typically buys out the other.
In either case, one or both parties should hire the services of a professional real estate appraiser to estimate the fair market value of the home. An appraisal for asset division should include a well-supported, professional report that’s defensible in court. We also provide expert witness testimony.
Often times the divorce date differs from the inspection date of the appraisal thus requiring a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and value estimate corresponding to the date of divorce or filing. We have completed countless divorce appraisals over the years and understand exactly what’s involved as well as the need to handle these situations with the utmost care.
As certified appraisers, we are bound by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) which means you are assured, the highest level of confidentiality, guaranteeing you the utmost discretion. In addition, we provide you with comprehensive appraisal reports that meet or exceed requirements of the courts and other various agencies.
