An experienced divorce appraiser conducted this residential appraisal report like Randy. The report will include an opinion of market value as well as information about the condition of the house, its location, and market trends that could affect its value.

The report will also include a list of comparable sales used to determine the valuation depending on the size of your home. With our team as your appraiser, you can be sure to have an accurate appraisal report that is fair and unbiased for both parties involved in the divorce proceedings.
Do I have to sell my house in a divorce?
The answer to this question depends on your situation. Generally, the court may decide it’s best for both parties to sell the house and divide the proceeds 50/50. Alternatively, your party may choose to “buy out” their spouse and stay in the home. In either case, an accurate divorce appraisal is necessary to determine the home's fair market value. With our expertise in divorce appraisals, you can get an accurate appraisal that both parties can agree on.
Why do divorce appraisals matter?
Divorce appraisals are important for several reasons. For instance:

• Divorce appraisals provide an accurate assessment of the value of your home that is fair and unbiased for both parties involved in the divorce proceedings.
• The market value determined by a divorce appraisal can help inform decisions about dividing marital assets, such as whether one spouse will stay in the house or if it should be sold.
• Divorce appraisals provide a homeowner with an understanding of the real estate market, which will help them decide when to buy or sell their property.
Why are appraisals better than the alternatives?
Appraisals are typically better than the alternatives because they provide an unbiased and accurate assessment of the value of a home. A comparative market analysis (CMA) conducted by a real estate agent is often not as reliable as an appraisal from a certified home appraiser. On the other hand, an appraiser has the experience and expertise to assess the value of a home with greater accuracy than other methods.

Determine the true worth of your property with a comprehensive analysis of all relevant factors, such as location, condition, and market trends.
