Working on a divorce? Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services has the experience for these matters.
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options regarding common real estate - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds split, 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 mutual real estate.
