Splitting up marital assets?
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when it comes to common real estate - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the residence.
