Dividing assets?We realize that divorce is a painful process. There are many decisions to worry about, including the status of the home. There are generally two alternatives regarding common real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the joint real estate.
A divorce appraisal should include a well-established, authoritative value conclusion that is defensible to a judge. When you order an appraisal from Robert J. Reamer, you are assured the best in service with courtesy and top notch analysis. Handling the special challenges of a divorce situation is familiar territory for us.
