+1. Real estate agents give you market assessment - what they'll try to sell it for. Then you have to guess at how much it actually sells for, then commission.

STBX is going to by me out w/ 401k money (and pay the 30% tax/penalty premium!) - her appraisal was thru the bank that will re-fi the mortgage. We're using that number.

I got full 50/50 (7/7) - my kids are old enough to advocate for themselves.

We went thru mediator first, for a Memo of Understanding. She then employs the lawyer to walk it thru the court, I go pro-se. Fees should come in < $7k total.

Thanks! Great feedback.
