Working on a divorce? Lighthouse Appraisal Service has the expertise you're looking for.
We understand that divorce is never easy. There are numerous choices that have to be finalized, including what to do with the house. There are generally two alternatives when it comes to the house - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should get an appraisal of the residence.
