Handling a divorce? Blake Thomas has the specific competence you're looking for.
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices regarding common real estate - it can be put up for sale 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 commission an appraisal of the residence.

For attorneys handling a divorce, your case's evidence typically needs an appraisal to establish fair market value for the residential real estate involved.

We're accustomed to the processes and all that it entails to develop a retroactive appraisal that has an effective date and Fair Market Value conclusion that matches the date of divorce. For each divorce appraisal we are hired to do we remain conscious of the fact that they require prudence with the utmost care. The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) contains an ethics provision which binds us with confidentiality, guaranteeing you the utmost discretion.
