Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including “Who gets the house”? There are generally two options regarding the house – it can be sold and the proceeds divided, or one party can “buy out” the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the residence. Divorce appraisals require a well-supported, professional appraisal that is defensible in court. When you order an appraisal from New Era Appraisals, you are assured that you will get the best in professional service, courtesy, and the highest quality appraisal. We also know how to handle the sensitive needs of a divorce situation.

Attorneys and Accountants rely on the values provided by New Era Appraisals when calculating real property values for divorces and other legal disputes requiring a value being placed on real property. We understand their needs and are accustomed to dealing with all parties involved. We provide appraisal reports that meet the requirements of the Maryland courts and various federal agencies.

As an attorney handling a divorce, your clients’ needs oftentimes include an appraisal to establish fair market value for the residential real estate involved.
Often the divorce date differs from the date you order the appraisal. We are familiar with the procedures and requirements necessary to perform a retroactive appraisal with an effective date and Fair Market Value estimate matching the date of divorce. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, ensuring the fullest degree of discretion.
