Divorce Appraisals in the state of PA by Ed Cline Appraisals
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when discussing common real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to get an appraisal of the joint real estate.

As a legal professional representing a client in a divorce, your case's research often requires an appraisal to establish fair market value for the residential real estate involved. Often the divorce date can be different from the date you ordered the appraisal. We're versed in the processes and what it takes to do a retroactive appraisal that has an effective date and Fair Market Value opinion corresponding to the date of divorce. We handle lots of divorce appraisals (unfortunately) and we understand that they require prudence delicately. The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) contains an ethics provision which compels us to keep the highest degree of confidentiality, resulting in the utmost discretion.
