Splitting up assets?
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives when discussing the house - 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 find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the residence.
