Divorce Appraisals in the state of MA by Tierney Appraisals
We know that divorce is never easy. There are many choices that have to be resolved, including the fate of the shared residence. There are generally two choices regarding real estate - 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 common real estate.

For lawyers handling a divorce, your case's evidence regularly requires an appraisal to establish fair market value for the residential real estate involved. Often the divorce date may not be the same as the date you ordered the appraisal. We're accustomed to the processes and requirements needed to develop a retroactive appraisal that has an effective date and Fair Market Value opinion that matches the date of divorce. We handle many 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) compels us to keep the highest degree of confidentiality, ensuring the utmost discretion.
