Evaluating Real Estate in a Declining Market

Valuation of Real Estate: Analyzing Your Options

At the Law Offices of Stephen J. Bedor, we do not offer off-the-shelf legal solutions. We tailor our recommendations to meet each individual client's needs and goals.

Nowhere is that more true than in the valuation of residential and business real estate for clients facing divorce or legal separation.

It's important to realize that the decision you make today may have a big impact in the future. That is why we carefully analyze your situation and advise you of the potential short- and long-term consequences of your options

Protecting Your Interests in a Declining Market

If the value of real estate is falling, we can still protect your interests even though we can no longer forecast that house values will automatically go up.

If you want to buy out your spouse's share of a piece of real estate, it may be in your best interest to delay your property division settlement. A home worth $700,000 today may be worth $40,000 less six months from now. In one recent case, the value of a home fell 3 percent in just four months.

Attorney Stephen J. Bedor frequently obtains real estate appraisals on properties that are subject to equitable distribution in divorce and legal separation. Our firm also works with real estate experts to understand market trends for the specific neighborhood and type of property.

A Solution Designed to Meet Your Needs

We analyze the circumstances of each case and develop strategies to put our clients in the most positive situation possible.
