Dividing marital assets?We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are many decisions that have to be settled, including the fate of the shared residence. There are generally two options when discussing real estate - 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 be wise to get an appraisal of the residence.
An appraisal for the purpose of asset division needs a well-established, authoritative value conclusion that can be supported in court. Axiom Real Estate Appraisal guarantees an exceptional level of service with professional courtesy and well-supported conclusions. We also know how to care for the delicate needs of a divorce situation.

As a lawyer representing a client in a divorce, your case's research regularly needs an appraisal to establish market value for the residential real estate involved. A lot of the time the divorce date can be different from the date you ordered the appraisal. We are familiar with the processes and what is elementary to do a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and Market Value estimate matching the date of divorce. We work on a reasonable number of divorce appraisals (unfortunately) and we understand that they need to be handled prudently. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) dictates confidentiality, ensuring the utmost discretion.
