When involved in a divorce, choose JKS Appraisal Services, Inc. to provide a realistic value of residence to be divided.We realize that divorce is never easy. There are numerous choices that have to be resolved, including the fate of the house. There are generally two alternatives when discussing real estate - it can be sold 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 get an appraisal of the residence.
