Involved in a divorce? Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. has the specific competence you're looking for.
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when discussing the shared residence - it can be put on the market and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the residence.
