If you are working through a divorce, choose Moreau Appraisals, Inc. to provide an accurate value of residence to be divided.Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including who keeps the house. There are generally two choices when discussing the shared residence - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the residence.
When the purpose of an appraisal is the division of assets, it should include a well-established, authoritative value conclusion that will hold up during a trial. Moreau Appraisals, Inc. pledges to give you the very best in service with courtesy and top notch analysis. Handling the sensitive conditions of a divorce situation is common territory for us.

As an attorney dealing with a divorce, your case's material facts customarily require an appraisal to establish market value for the residential real estate involved. Many times the divorce date may not be the same as the date you ordered the appraisal. We are familiar with the techniques and requirements requisite to do a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and Market Value estimate matching the date of divorce. We handle a reasonable number of divorce appraisals (unfortunately) and we understand that they need to be handled delicately. The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) contains an ethics provision which means the highest amount of confidentiality, ensuring the utmost discretion.
