Divorce and real estate disputes involve many valuation decisions, including deciding who gets the property. In a divorce, there are generally two options regarding disposition of real property: it can be sold and the proceeds divided, or one party can “buy out” the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the real estate by a qualified appraiser.
