Divorce Appraisals 

The home may be the greatest single asset of a marriage, but it may become a point of contention in a divorce, given its financial and emotional value. It's important to understand both the legal rights and economic realities before making any decisions. Finalizing a divorce can involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house?" There are generally two options regarding marital dissolution and settlement regarding the house. It can be sold and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, an Appraisal completed by a Market Valuation Expert, provides a conclusion of the real estate's value. "What is the house worth?" A determination of value performed by a professional Certified Appraiser is key in providing a well supported appraisal report that is defensible in court. Alta Associates Appraisals, Inc. can assure that its client will get the best in terms of professional service, courtesy, and the highest quality home appraisal report. Our knowledge and experience in addressing the sensitive needs of a divorce situation with regards to the valuation of the home are important. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, ensuring the fullest degree of discretion.
