Dividing assets?Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including who keeps the house. There are generally two alternatives when it comes to the shared residence - 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 get an appraisal of the residence.
An appraisal for the purpose of asset division must have a well-established, professional value conclusion that can be supported to a judge.
