We understand that divorce is never easy. There are many issues looming, including the status of the shared residence. There are generally two alternatives regarding the house – 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 would find it in their best interest to get an appraisal of the residence.
