We realize that divorce is a painful process. There are countless decisions to worry about, including the status of the house. There are generally two options regarding the shared residence - it can be put on the market and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to get an appraisal of the common real estate.
