Comprehensive Real Estate Analysis
$350 to compare two scenarios
Decisions regarding what to do with the marital home and other real estate can often times be clouded by emotion. It is important to have a clear understanding of the financial implications of potential decisions. Your comprehensive real estate analysis is a detailed report by a Forensic Real Estate Divorce Strategist™ that includes a comparison of two scenarios for one real estate property. Example scenarios include:
- One spouse keeping the house
- One spouse buying out the other with other community assets
- Selling the house and dividing the proceeds
- Owning the house jointly, one spouse living in it
- Owning the house jointly, using it for rental property
Your analysis will explore the potential tax ramifications and estimates of gains/losses with each scenario, and well as provide the deed, mortgage history, deed of trust and comparative market values of the property at the date of separation.
