Splitting up assets?
Finalizing a divorce involves 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 would find it in their best interest to order an appraisal of the shared real estate.
