Splitting up assets?
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices regarding 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 should get an appraisal of the joint real estate.
