We understand that divorce can be very difficult. There are many choices looming, including what to do with the house. There are generally two options when it comes to the shared residence - it can be put on the market and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to get an appraisal of the shared real estate.
