How will our high asset real estate investments be divided?
Real estate will be subject to equitable distribution just like all other marital assets. They will be lumped together with other marital assets and then divided by the judge if the couple cannot reach an agreement on their own. In this respect, high asset real estate is no different than any other marital property.
However, real estate creates certain complications that are not present with other assets. For one, it is hard to value real estate since property values fluctuate. You and your spouse can agree to a value or have the property expertly appraised. Make sure that you have an appraiser who understands the high-end real estate market.
