When handling a divorce, choose Maxwell Appraisal Services to provide a realistic value of the common residence.
We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are numerous choices that have to be settled, including what's going to happen to the house. There are generally two alternatives when discussing real estate - 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 order an appraisal of the common real estate.
