The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Max N. Tobias, Jr.
ON APPLICATIONS FOR REHEARING
(Court composed of Judge Dennis R. Bagneris, Sr., Judge Max N. Tobias, Jr., Judge Edwin A. Lombard)
REHEARING GRANTED ON APPLICATION OF MARGARET K. SLIMP; REHEARING DENIED ON APPLICATION OF MICHAEL J. SARTISKY; OPINION AMENDED; RENDERED.
Marjorie Slimp ("Slimp"), the defendant/appellant, and Michael J. Sartisky ("Sartisky"), the plaintiff/appellee, each filed a timely applications for rehearing after we issued our opinion in this matter on 17 September 2012.

Giving each party credit for their reimbursable expenses, results in the total sum of $533,988.85 for Sartisky and $266,688.43 for Slimp.
The rehearing application of Sartisky is denied. Based on the foregoing, we reverse the trial court and render judgment as follows: out of the net proceeds from the sale of the Harmony Street house of $800,677.28, Michael J. Sartisky is awarded the sum of $533,988.85 and Margaret K. Slimp is awarded the sum of $266,688.43. We further affirm the trial court's judgment dismissing the new lawsuit by ...
