When working through a divorce, choose Lakeland Appraisal to provide a true value of real estate to be divided.
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when discussing common real estate - 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 would be wise to get an appraisal of the shared real estate.
