One of the unfortunate parts of getting divorced is the splitting of the assets. But when one of the biggest assets any couple has is real estate, the splitting of it can be challenging, nerve-wracking, and something that each party has vested interest in the value being either high, or low depending on the final outcome of the settlement.
Of course selling the property and splitting the proceeds is the sure fire way of determining who gets what, frequently that is not an option, or even the best idea. It can be a dream home or a family home, and one party will want to keep it.
So with parties lives being torn apart and strangers determining what the assets are worth, someone is likely to always be unhappy with the outcome.
All Aces Appraisals is aware of the divorce stressors, and tries to mitigate the pain for both sides through mature interactions and mindful procedures. Generally All Aces Appraisals does not even know, or want to know how the outcome affects each individual. Because someone always wants the value to be high, and someone low. The property owners frequently call friends who are Realtors to come in and do a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) that favors the individual party who enlists their help.
Side note: Technically in Oregon, a Realtor cannot provide a CMA for a divorce proceeding, but only to seek to enlist a listing. While frequently done, it is against Oregon Statue.
It’s a serious decision. Emotions are high, and people’s futures are at stake.
