Why Hire a Qualified Appraiser?

Almost any time real property, personal property or a business changes hands, is divided, or is involved in a dispute, it is important to ascertain a defendable value. At best, a timely appraisal will simplify negotiations and preclude disputes and litigation among interested parties. If negotiations break down, a professional appraisal can be a powerful tool for an attorney. Anyone conducting decedent estate or divorce proceedings or assuming fiduciary responsibility for real property, personal property, or a business enterprise, should consult a qualified appraiser.
