When working through a divorce, choose West Michigan Appraisal to provide a realistic value of the shared real estate asset.
We understand that divorce is never easy. There are numerous issues to worry about, including what to do with the house. There are generally two alternatives when it comes to the shared residence - 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 residence.
