Divorce settlements involve many decisions… including “Who gets the house?”
There are generally two choices regarding common real estate – 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 get an appraisal of the common real estate.
An appraisal for divorce purposes requires a well-established, authoritative report that can be supported to a judge. Aegis Appraisals guarantees the very best in service with professional courtesy and well-supported conclusions. Working through the sensitive needs of a divorce proceeding is not a problem for us.
There is a reason local attorneys and accountants depend on our appraisals when attempting to establish a value opinion. Our appraisers have an abundance of expertise dealing with all of the parties involved and can readily handle your needs.

For attorneys working with a divorce, your case’s research often necessitates an appraisal to determine fair market value for the residential real estate involved. Many times the divorce date differs from the date you purchased the appraisal. We’re comfortable with the procedures and what it means to perform a retroactive appraisal that has an effective date and Fair Market Value estimate corresponding to the date of divorce.
