Divorce Appraisals in the state of MD by Astute Appraisals, Inc.
We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are many decisions that have to be settled, including the fate of the house. There are generally two alternatives when it comes to common real estate - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the joint real estate.
