If you are working through a divorce, choose Around the Sound Appraisals to provide a realistic value of residence to be divided.
We realize that divorce can be very difficult. There are countless choices looming, including the fate of the shared residence. There are generally two options when it comes to the shared residence - it can be sold and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to get an appraisal of the joint real estate.
Contact us if your needs include an appraisal dealing with a divorce or other separation of assets.
When the intended use of an appraisal is a couple splitting up, it should include a well-supported, authoritative value conclusion that can be supported to a judge. Around the Sound Appraisals guarantees the very best in service with courtesy and top notch analysis. Working through the special conditions of a divorce situation is not a problem for us.
Attorneys in WA as well as accountants depend on our appraisals when figuring out what the real property is worth for estates, divorces, or other disputes where it is in question.

For lawyers representing a client in a divorce, your case's evidence often requires an appraisal to determine fair market value for the residential real estate involved. Often the divorce date may not be the same as the date you requested the appraisal. We are familiar with the techniques and what is elementary to complete a retroactive appraisal that has an effective date and Fair Market Value conclusion that matches the date of divorce. We handle a reasonable number of divorce appraisals (unfortunately) and we understand that they need to be handled delicately. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) dictates confidentiality, guaranteeing you the utmost discretion.
