Involved in a divorce? Wilson & Associates has the experience for these matters.Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including who keeps the house. There are generally two choices when discussing real estate - it can be sold and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should commission an appraisal of the residence.
An appraisal for the purpose of asset division should include a well-established, authoritative appraisal document that is defensible during a trial. Wilson & Associates guarantees an exceptional level of service with professional courtesy and the highest quality appraisal.
