The Two Gaps in Your Case File – With Appraisals
If you use appraisals in your practice to help determine the value of a house in a divorce case, we can quickly show you two gaps in the case file which may have you rethink the practice of using appraisals to determine the value of the marital home.
Our team of professionals helps to resolve gaps in house due diligence where it involves a real estate property in a divorce, so your clients can make better, more informed decisions about keeping the house after a divorce.

We Specialize in Divorce Real Estate – Less than 1% of all Real Estate Agents Have this Training and Designation
Peter Hudson obtained the Real Estate Collaborative Specialist-Divorce Designation (RCS-D) by working under the tutelage of Professor Kelly Lise Murray, J.D., who acquired her A.B. from Stanford University, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. She is also the Co-Founder of Divorce This House.
Other real estate agents will be ‘guessing’ how to advise your clients. We provide the facts.
Many of our professional partners also have the RCS-D designation.

We help attorneys, paralegals and mediators gather information and documentation to enhance their divorce case files.

We explain to our clients how their decisions with respect to the home can impact their quality of life for many years to come.

We’ll explain why house due diligence is very important to determining actual value.
We’ll explain why a CLUE report should be part of your case file.
Our title company partners can provide title and lien searches on the property so no unexpected surprises surface during the process.
We can confirm equity in the house, check for mechanics liens and check to see if there is a home equity line of credit (HELOC) that has the potential of decreasing the equity in the home.
Our assistance helps you gather the details you need, creating less busy work for you and your paralegals.
