Dividing assets?Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including who keeps the house. There are generally two choices when discussing real estate - it can be sold and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should get an appraisal of the common real estate.
When the reason for an appraisal is the division of assets, it must have a well-supported, expert value conclusion that can be supported in court. When you order an appraisal from MEF Appraisal Group, you are assured the best in service with courtesy and the highest quality appraisal.
