Divorce is never an easy process, especially when there are assets involved. One of the largest assets divorcing couples need to talk about is the family home. Not everyone chooses to sell the family home, but if you are considering it, it never hurts to get a head start on things. I am a certified real estate divorce specialist and I can help you through this difficult time. Here are a few things you should think about.
Consider keeping the home furnished or staged if someone is going to move out, or even if someone is going to continue to live. Staged homes sell quicker and sell for more money.
I specialize in helping divorcing couples sell their homes and I can help you navigate all the additional complexities that come with selling while divorcing, including helping to try and keep the costs down with the lawyers by involving them in only what you deem necessary. Consult with your attorney about the finances and divorce, but let your agent handle the sale and only involve the attornies on things that are necessary. Sending an unnecessary email can cost you hundreds of dollars. Also, I can help you stay calm. Emotions tend to run high during situations like this and those emotions can hurt the process more than help. I can make sure that everything is fair between all parties and get you to closing table as smoothly and as quickly as possible.
