It depends on whether you want a property or just money from the sale, but either is possible by negotiation, if she will agree. So if you are happy getting paid out that is a reasonable approach. You will need to get a formal agreement under the Property Relationships Act to make this a binding settlement and each of you will need independent legal advice on the settlement.
If you cannot agree on the fate of the properties, the default position of the Family Court would be to order a sale.
