Divorce Appraisals in St. Petersburg
When finalizing a divorce there are generally two options regarding the house; it can be sold and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. If the parties want to sell the home an appraisal will assist them in setting a realistic price. If a "buy out" is the chosen option, an appraisal allows both parties to feel like they have received a fair assessment. In either case, one or both parties should always order an appraisal of the residence.
