Involved in a divorce? Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. has the expertise for these matters.
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when discussing the house - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the residence.
