If you are involved in a divorce, choose Laurie Hawes Appraisal Service to provide a realistic value of the couple's residence.
We realize that divorce can be very difficult. There are many issues to worry about, including the fate of the home. There are generally two options regarding the house - 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 residence.
