If you are working through a divorce, choose Ascension Appraisal to provide a true value of real estate to be divided.
We know that divorce is a painful process. There are countless issues that have to be finalized, including what to do with the shared residence. There are generally two alternatives when discussing the shared residence - it can be sold 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 get an appraisal of the residence.
