Dividing assets?Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including who keeps the house. There are generally two alternatives when it comes to common real estate - 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 common real estate.
