We realize that divorce can be very difficult. There are many choices to worry about, including what's going to happen to the shared residence. There are generally two choices when it comes to real estate - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the residence.
