If you are working through a divorce, choose Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. to provide an accurate value of residence to be divided.
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when it comes to the shared residence - it can be put on the market 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 shared real estate.
