Good day, my wife and I will be filing for divorce shortly and need to know how to value our home.
We closed in December/2012 on a ~260,000 mortgage.
She moved out of our home in Feb/2013, I have paid all mortgage payments, bills, insurance, etc. since.
We are both on the mortgage and deed.
We owe ~240,000 on the mortgage, the home is currently valued at ~310,000.
I did not have the house appraised at any time in the interim.
I am working to refinance the house in my name only and would like to continue living there.
What is the fair value of the house, that we would then split and I buy her out of her portion of the uptick in value?
