Splitting up assets?Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two choices regarding 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 be wise to order an appraisal of the joint real estate.
