If you are getting a divorce, choose Ascension Appraisal to provide an accurate value of real estate to be divided.
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options regarding the house - it can be put up for sale 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 residence.
