Divorce Appraisals in the state of Florida by Ken Maurer AppraisalsDivorce settlements involve many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two alternatives regarding the shared residence - it can be put up for sale 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 commission an appraisal of the residence.
