Dividing marital assets?Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two choices when discussing the shared residence - 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 should commission an appraisal of the mutual real estate.
An appraisal for the purpose of asset division must have a well-established, professional report that is defensible to a judge.
