Handling a divorce? Barnes Appraisal Company has the specific competence you're looking for.
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives regarding the shared residence - it can be sold 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 mutual real estate.
