Involved in a divorce? Cruden Appraisal Inc. has the expertise for these matters.
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives regarding common real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the residence.
