Involved in a divorce? Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services has the experience for these matters.
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives when it comes to common real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds split, 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 common real estate.
