Estates & Family Law

The division of estates is oftentimes a turbulent and complex process. Whether you’re in the midst of a divorce or are trying to fairly divvy up the estate of a deceased individual, such as a relative, you’ll need a comprehensive real estate appraisal to ensure everything is valued accurately.

Estate appraisal services, such as those offered by Maxwell, Hendry & Simmons, allow you to know the accurate value of real estate, whether that is residential real estate like a family home, undeveloped property such as a lot, or commercial real estate like the facility for a family business. Estate appraisal services are important when:

  • You are trying to divide a deceased person’s assets between living descendants or inheritors
  • You are attempting to interpret property division based on a will’s stipulations

In divorce, estate appraisal is also oftentimes necessary. For example, if you and your spouse want to divide your former marital home evenly, you’ll need to know how much the home is worth. Maxwell, Hendry & Simmons’s estate appraisal services can:

  • Determine the current value of your home and any related real estate assets
  • Consult you and/or your former spouse to determine the best course of action for your financial goals
  • And more

While you could go with a comparative market analysis from a real estate agent, this is not as comprehensive or thorough as a full appraisal from licensed professionals like Maxwell, Hendry & Simmons. A comparative market analysis uses current market conditions to determine the value of your home. Naturally, these market conditions can fluctuate regularly, resulting in a lower valuation and less money in your pocket.

With Maxwell, Hendry & Simmons, you don’t have to worry about your property appraisal being swayed to the other side in a divorce case or not getting what you deserve. Contact us today to learn more about our estate and family law appraisal services.
