Splitting up marital assets?
We realize that divorce is never easy. There are many choices that have to be resolved, including what to do with the home. There are generally two alternatives when discussing the house - 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 be wise to get an appraisal of the mutual real estate.
