Divorce Appraisals in the state of CA by CTF Appraisals
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives when discussing the shared residence - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divided, 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.
