Splitting up assets?
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when it comes to the shared residence - it can be sold and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should get an appraisal of the mutual real estate.
