When getting a divorce, choose Willamette Valley Appraisal Professionals to provide a true value of the common real estate asset.
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when it comes to common real estate - it can be sold and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to order an appraisal of the residence.
