Involved in a divorce? Bowers Real Estate & Appraisal Services has the specific competence you need.
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when it comes to the house - 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 would be wise to commission an appraisal of the mutual real estate.
Contact us if you require an appraisal related to a divorce or other separation of assets.
