Involved in a divorce? Ed Cline Appraisals has the expertise you're looking for.
We understand that divorce is never easy. There are numerous issues that have to be finalized, including what to do with the home. There are generally two choices when discussing the shared residence - 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 would find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the residence.
