Finalizing a divorce involves many crucial decisions, including the division of assets, and the most significant of these assets can be the family home. There are typically two options - the home can be sold and the profits divided, or one party can buy out the other. Regardless of the decision made, obtaining an accurate and professional appraisal of the home is imperative.
At our appraisal firm, we provide top-notch appraisal services for divorce cases. Our appraisals are well-supported and defensible in court, ensuring that you receive the best in professional service, courtesy, and quality. We are also sensitive to the delicate nature of divorce proceedings and are equipped to handle these sensitive needs with the utmost discretion.
Attorneys and accountants trust our appraisals when calculating the values of real estate for estates, divorces, or other disputes that require property valuations. Our team is experienced in working with all parties involved and can provide appraisal reports that meet the requirements of the court and various agencies.
As an attorney handling a divorce case, you may require an appraisal to determine the fair market value of the residential property. In some cases, the date of the divorce may differ from the date of the appraisal order. We are familiar with the procedures and requirements for performing a retroactive appraisal, with an effective date and fair market value estimate that matches the date of the divorce. The ethics provisions within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) ensure that we maintain the utmost confidentiality and discretion throughout the process.
