Involved in a divorce? R. Scott Pierce Appraisal Services has the experience you're looking for.
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives regarding the house - it can be sold and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to get an appraisal of the joint real estate.
