Divorce Appraisals in the state of Texas by Lone Star AppraisalsWe know that divorce is never easy. There are countless decisions that have to be settled, including what to do with the house. There are generally two options when discussing real estate - 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 should order an appraisal of the residence.
A divorce appraisal requires a well-established, expert value conclusion that can be supported in court. Lone Star Appraisals guarantees the very best in service with courtesy and well-supported conclusions. We also know how to care for the sensitive needs of a divorce situation.
