Working on a divorce? Loving Appraisals has the specific competence you're looking for.
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when it comes to common real estate - it can be sold 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 get an appraisal of the joint real estate.
Contact us if you require an appraisal related to a divorce or other separation of assets.
An appraisal for divorce purposes should include a well-established, authoritative value conclusion that is defensible to a judge. When you order an appraisal from Loving Appraisals, you are assured the best in service with courtesy and well-supported conclusions. We also know how to handle the sensitive needs of a divorce situation.

As a legal professional working with a divorce, your case's evidence often necessitates an appraisal to determine fair market value for the residential real estate involved. A great deal of the time the divorce date may not be the same as the date you ordered the appraisal. We're versed in the processes and what's necessary to perform a retroactive appraisal that has an effective date and Fair Market Value conclusion corresponding to the date of divorce. We handle a reasonable number of divorce appraisals (unfortunately) and we understand that they need to be handled delicately. The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) contains an ethics provision which dictates confidentiality, resulting in the utmost discretion.
