A great deal involves condition and location. Both parties will have to agree on a local appraiser or the mean value between the opinion of two appraisers, one selected by each of you. The names of appraisers are plentiful in the telephone directory.
Sorry you are going through this.
Two appraisers at the beach I like a lot, both in business a long time, knowledgeable of our community and real professionals are: Len Hileman at 904-270-2250 and Spencer Gregg at 249-1300.
Remember, a licensed professional has a code of ethics and guidelines to work with. If an appraiser did anything but an objective appraisal, he could risk losing his license. You are pretty safe to get a licensed, established appraiser.
Good luck. Here is something someone told me once: "I cried as they cut down the trees, and then when they were gone, I realized I could see the moon for the first time." I hope it is like that for you.
If the property is being sold, then both parties should interview and agree to hire a specific REALTOR, then ask that REALTOR for recommendations. Any of these methods will help keep the peace during the process of the divorce and sale. If you're not going to sell, and are planning to turn over the agreed amount of the proceeds to your soon-to-be ex, then obviously, a REALTORS services won't be needed. In that case, consult your attorneys and agree with your ex on one of the other methods.
