Splitting up marital assets?
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when it comes to common real estate - it can be sold 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.
