Involved in a divorce? Barnes Appraisal Company has the expertise you need.
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives when it comes to common real estate - it can be put on the market 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 order an appraisal of the joint real estate.
