The all grown up “Little House on The Prairie” girl, Melissa Gilbert is selling her house as she and husband Bruce Boxleitner head toward divorce.  This is probably not how TV papa Michael Landon would’ve wanted to see things end up for his “Half Pint,” but the decor in her home sure does remind me of something America’s Midwestern Ingalls family might enjoy. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved the TV show and read the whole book series. Now that I live in Minnesota I have yet to make it down to Walnut Grove to see the Laura Ingalls Wilder look-a-like contest along the banks of Plum Creek. One day.  In the mean time, check out photos of Melissa Gilbert’s Tarzana, Calif. home here at Aol Real Estate and read the full story here. To see a video of the Ingalls-Wilder wedding, or to hear Gilbert discuss her own parents’ divorce, see more after the jump.  Good luck to you Melissa.

Buying a home from a divorcing couple can have its advantages and disadvantages.

Imagine putting an offer in on your dream home only to attend the pre-inspection walk-through to learn that a bitter, divorcing husband flooded the house the night before by leaving all of the faucets running. That actually happened with a New York home where the husband just didn’t want the wife to have money from the home sale proceeds.

We always hope that when we have an accepted offer on a home that we will actually close, but there can be hiccups along the way due to the family dynamics of the sellers. And when divorce is involved, fingers crossed that you’ll even get an accepted offer.

Read what the experts have to say about buying a divorce home.
