Splitting up assets?
We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are many choices looming, including the status of the shared residence. There are generally two choices when discussing common real estate - 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 find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the residence.
