Splitting up marital assets?
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when discussing real estate - it can be sold 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.
