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