Working on a divorce? Geist & Associates has the expertise you're looking for.
We understand that divorce is never easy. There are numerous issues that have to be finalized, including what happens to the home. There are generally two options regarding common real estate - 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 would find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the residence.
