Splitting up assets?
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when discussing 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.
