Divorce Appraisals in Barnstable County by Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when discussing 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 should get an appraisal of the joint real estate.
