Splitting up assets?
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives 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 should get an appraisal of the residence.
