Helping clients and professionals find and gather the information needed to make better decisions
Years ago, our Secretary of Defense once said “There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns …”
Having been down this path before, it’s important for you to know there are other resources to consider beyond the real estate appraisal for determining equitable distribution of the marital property. There may be hidden issues that only a team of experienced real estate professionals may help you discover. For instance; are there potential title liens on the property? Has an insurance claim been filed on the property (unknown to the other spouse)? How does the overall property condition factor into value? Does either party qualify to take over payments or buy out the other party?
As a professional, working with an experienced team, we can help uncover the “unknowns” to help make the “equitablbe distribution” more equitable at the end of the day. These areas are often beyond the usual scope of the attorneys.
