When involved in a divorce, choose AVK Appraisal Services to provide an unbiased defensible value of the common real estate asset. Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two choices when it comes to the house - it can be sold and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should get an appraisal of the residence. Relying on a free online service is probably not in your best interest.
A divorce appraisal needs a well-established, authoritative report that will hold up with or without litigation.
