Handling a divorce? O'Brien Appraisal Group has the specific competence you need.
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when discussing the shared residence - it can be sold 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 common real estate.
