Working on a divorce? Owen Appraisal Service LLC has the experience you need.
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when discussing common real estate - 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 mutual real estate.
Contact us if your needs include an appraisal for the purposes of a divorce or other separation of assets.

As a lawyer working with a divorce, your case's evidence regularly requires an appraisal to establish fair market value for the residential real estate involved. Many times the divorce date may not be the same as the date you ordered the appraisal. We're experienced with the techniques and the effort mandatory to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and Fair Market Value estimate that matches the date of divorce. We perform lots of divorce appraisals (unfortunately) and we understand that they require prudence delicately.
