Handling a divorce? Pendleton Appraisals has the experience for these matters.
We understand that divorce is never easy. There are countless choices that have to be settled, including what happens to the home. There are generally two options when discussing 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 find it in their best interest to order an appraisal of the joint real estate.
