Splitting up assets?Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two options when discussing the house - 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 be wise to order an appraisal of the joint real estate.
When the reason for an appraisal is the division of assets, it needs a well-established, professional report that will hold up in court.
