Working on a divorce? Appraisals Plus has the expertise for these matters.Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including who keeps the house. There are generally two alternatives when it comes to the house - 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 be wise to order an appraisal of the residence.
When the purpose of an appraisal is the division of assets, it should include a well-supported, professional value conclusion that is defensible to a judge. When you order an appraisal from Appraisals Plus , you are assured the best in service with professional courtesy and the highest quality appraisal. Working through the particular needs of a divorce situation is somewhat matter-of-fact for us.
Pennsylvania attorneys as well as accountants depend on our opinions when ascertaining what real property is worth for estates, divorces, or other disputes depending on a value opinion. We understand their needs and are accustomed to dealing with all parties involved. We provide appraisal reports for courts or various agencies that meet or exceed their requirements.
As an attorney handling a divorce, your case's material facts customarily require an appraisal to establish market value for the residential real estate involved. A great deal of the time the divorce date can be different from the date you ordered the appraisal. We're accustomed to the methods and what it means to perform a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and Market Value opinion matching the date of divorce. We handle lots of divorce appraisals (unfortunately) and we understand that they need to be handled delicately. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) means the highest amount of confidentiality, ensuring the utmost discretion.
