  6.  If an appraisal is filed with the court under subsection 4 of this section, the court shall conduct a hearing to determine the fair market value of the property no sooner than thirty days after a copy of the notice of the appraisal is sent to each party under subsection 5 of this section regardless of whether an objection to the appraisal is filed under subdivision (3) of subsection 5 of this section.  In addition to the court-ordered appraisal, the court may consider any other evidence of value offered by a party.

  7.  After a hearing under subsection 6 of this section but before considering the merits of the partition action, the court shall determine the fair market value of the property and send notice to the parties of the value.
