Divorce Appraisals in Franklin County by Lareau Appraisal ServiceFinalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two alternatives when it comes to real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the joint real estate.
A divorce appraisal should include a well-established, professional appraisal document that can be supported to a judge. When you order an appraisal from Lareau Appraisal Service, you are assured the best in service with courtesy and well-supported conclusions.
