Divorce Appraisals in the state of California by Abacus AppraisalFinalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two choices when discussing the house - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divided, 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.
When the intended use of an appraisal is the division of assets, it should include a well-established, expert value conclusion that can be supported during a trial. Abacus Appraisal pledges to give you an exceptional level of service with courtesy and the highest quality appraisal. Working through the special needs of a divorce situation is not a problem for us.

As an attorney representing a client in a divorce, your case's material facts customarily require an appraisal to determine market value for the residential real estate involved. A great deal of the time the divorce date can be different from the date you ordered the appraisal. We're comfortable with the methods and the effort mandatory to develop a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and Market Value opinion matching the date of divorce. We perform a reasonable number of divorce appraisals (unfortunately) and we understand that they need to be handled prudently. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, guaranteeing you the utmost discretion.
