✔ Divorce appraisals
In the event that marriages must come to an end, the process of dividing assets and properties can be a huge headache, especially for couples with no prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
When divorce happens, one of the most common things divorce lawyers suggest to have a just share between the two clients is by selling all the co-owned properties and dividing the profits among them.
We provide an unbiased appraisal service for divorced couples to be able to have the correct fair market value of a certain property. This is done to determine how much money can be split equally when the property is sold.
✔ Prelisting appraisals
In the event when homeowners want to sell a house or property, they will always want to get the proper and fair value in the present market. Nobody would want to lose money by inaccurately pricing their house too cheap and they would also not want to price it too steeply that nobody would want to buy it.
If you need a professional to do the research and assessment in order to know how much your property is actually worth, you have come to the right place. We will always give our unbiased opinion.
✔ Estate tax appraisals
If you had a family member that was recently deceased and left an estate to you as its inheritor, you would probably have to pay an estate tax before it can be yours.
Estate tax appraisals are usually required by mortgage companies and are done to ensure that you are paying the right value of taxes that is mandated by the government and will be used to build roads, schools, and other public infrastructures.
How big your tax can be will depend on the value of your property. To ensure that you are paying the right amount, you can call a professional tax appraiser and get it done. The data that we will get will only be used to determine the property tax amount of your estate.
