Splitting up marital assets?
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when it comes to 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 residence.
