Divorce Appraisals in the state of ME by Buxton Associates
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when it comes to 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 be wise to order an appraisal of the shared real estate.
