Working on a divorce? Peak Appraisals, Inc. has the specific competence you need.
We know that divorce can be very difficult. There are countless decisions that have to be settled, including what to do with the home. There are generally two alternatives when it comes to common real estate - it can be put up for sale 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.
Contact us if your needs include an appraisal related to a divorce or other separation of assets.
