Divorce Appraisals in Orange County by Premier Appraisal of Southern California
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when it comes to the house - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divided, 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.
