We understand that divorce can be very difficult. There are countless decisions that have to be finalized, including what to do with the shared residence. There are generally two choices regarding common real estate - it can be put on the market 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 common real estate.
