Boise Divorce Appraisal Services
Going through a divorce? The professionals at Appraisal One have straightforward expertise to help you determine the market value of your home.
We understand that a divorce is a difficult and painful process. Most couples agree that their home is the single-most important asset acquired over the course of their marriage. There are several issues that need to be resolved once you’ve agreed to part ways. It’s critically important to obtain an accurate appraisal as one of the steps in the property division process. There are usually two options regarding common real estate – it can be sold and the net proceeds divided among both parties, or one party can simply elect to “buy out” the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to hire a professional real estate appraiser to estimate the home’s fair market value.
A reliable and credible divorce appraisal should include both detailed information and summary information that’s conclusive and explainable, so both parties understand how the appraiser’s results were derived. The residential appraiser’s scope of work typically entails research and analysis of the structure to verify the overall condition, past improvements that you’ve made, along with consideration for the local market and your specific neighborhood. The final appraisal will essentially be a document containing value conclusions along with the rationale to support those conclusions so that if needed – the estimate will hold up under the scrutiny of the court.
