How Do I Determine the Market Value of a Home in a Divorce or Separation?

The market value of your home simply should be a value that is agreed upon by you and your spouse. There are some online tools you can use to help you make this valuation.

Generally fair market value of a home can be obtained by checking the sale price of comparable homes in your area.

You may review home sale websites like Zillow or Trulia, or you can research your local County Tax Auditors website to obtain general information about home sales in your area.
