We realize that divorce is a painful process. There are numerous issues that have to be finalized, including the status of the shared residence. There are generally two alternatives when discussing common real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to order an appraisal of the mutual real estate.
