If an appraisement of the real property is contained in the inventory required of an executor or administrator by section 2115.02 of the Revised Code, and of a guardian by section 2111.14 of the Revised Code, the probate court may order a sale in accordance with the appraisement, or order a new appraisement. If a new appraisement is not ordered, the value set forth in the inventory shall be the appraised value of the real property. If the court orders a new appraisement, the value returned shall be the appraised value of the real property.
If the interest of the deceased or ward in the real property is fractional and undivided, and if a party requests and the court orders the entire interest in the real property to be sold, a new appraisement of the entire interest in the real property shall be ordered.
If the relief requested is granted and new appraisement is ordered, the court shall appoint one, or on request of the executor, administrator, or guardian, not exceeding three judicious and disinterested persons of the vicinity, not next of kin of the complainant, to appraise the real property in whole and in parcels at its true value in money. If the real property lies in two or more counties the court may appoint appraisers in any or all of the counties in which the real property or a part of it is situated.
