We know that divorce is a painful process. There are numerous decisions that have to be finalized, including the status of the shared residence. There are generally two options when it comes to real estate - it can be put up for sale 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 shared real estate.
