Splitting up marital assets?
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices regarding the shared residence - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the mutual real estate.
