Divorce Appraisals in Howard County and throughout Maryland by Hancock Hollow GroupFinalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including who keeps the house. There are generally two options when it comes to the house - it can be sold and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should commission an appraisal of the residence.
