Divorce Appraisals in the state of CA by Compass Appraisal Management
We realize that divorce is a painful process. There are many decisions that have to be finalized, including what to do with the shared residence. There are generally two choices when it comes to common real estate - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divvied up, 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 common real estate.
