Handling a divorce? Columbia Realty Advisors has the specific competence for these matters.
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options regarding common real estate - it can be sold and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should commission an appraisal of the joint real estate.
