Involved in a divorce? Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. has the expertise for these matters.
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options regarding the house - it can be sold 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 order an appraisal of the residence.
