Divorce is a painful process that requires decisions to be made including ‘who’s staying’ and ‘who’s going’ when determining what happens to the family home. Many times the house, or houses, are put up for sale and the profits are split or one of the parties buys out the other.
Both parties should hire the services of a professional real estate appraiser to determine the fair market value of the home. An asset division appraisal should include a well-supported, professional report that is defensible in court.
Often times, the divorce date differs from the inspection date of the appraisal and requires a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and value estimate corresponding to the date of divorce or filing. We have completed literally hundreds of divorce appraisals over the last 20 years so we understand what’s involved as well as the need to handle these situations with the privacy and care they require.
Being bound by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) means you are assured a high level of confidentiality, guaranteeing you discretion. We also provide you with comprehensive appraisal reports that often exceed the requirements of the courts and other various agencies depending on an accurate appraisal.
When working with the ‘Sammco Appraisal Group’ you can be assured you’ll get the best in professional service and you will receive the highest quality appraisal reports. Our team of appraisers will also respect and protect the privacy of your needs in divorce situations.
