Working on a divorce? R. Scott Pierce Appraisal Services has the experience you need.
We know that divorce can be very difficult. There are numerous issues that have to be finalized, including the status of the shared residence. There are generally two choices regarding the shared residence - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the shared real estate.
Contact us if your needs include an appraisal related to a divorce or other separation of assets.
