When involved in a divorce, choose James Delaplante to provide a true value of the couple's residence.We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are numerous choices that have to be finalized, including the status of the house. There are generally two options regarding common 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 should commission an appraisal of the residence.

When you order an appraisal from James Delaplante, you are assured the best in service with courtesy and well-supported conclusions.
