Divorce Appraisals in the state of FL by Dana O'Hara Smith
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives when discussing the house - 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 commission an appraisal of the residence.
