We know that divorce can be very difficult. There are many decisions looming, including the status of the home. There are generally two choices when it comes to the shared residence - it can be sold and the proceeds divided, 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.
