                             Selling Due to Divorce?

Selling a home in the best of situations can be stressful; adding in a divorce

and selling a home can seem impossible. It’s an emotional time for the

whole family and this can cause you to make the wrong decisions in the

sales process. In addition to finding the right real estate agent, who

understands and can help guide you, here are a few tips for navigating this

difficult process.

Agree on Clear Objectives

Before listing your home, sit down with your partner and define the goals of

the sale. Do you want to move quickly? Are you willing to wait to maximize

profits? Create a timeline with benchmarks and decision points together

and understand how and when to reevaluate the goals.

Open Communication

Divorce involves complex emotions and selling the family home can

certainly add to the stress. Determine ahead of time how, and how often,

you will communicate regarding the progress of the sale. If amicable, you

may be able to discuss the details together, if not, consider using a

mediator to help.

Set Realistic Expectations

Discuss with your agent the expectations for listing, price, showings, open

houses, etc. If one party is still living in the home, it can be especially

disruptive to show the home on short notice. Both parties must agree to the

parameters, to avoid conflict.

Selling a home during a divorce can be particularly difficult. By working with

your agent and your partner, you can minimize the emotional turmoil by

planning.  We have successfully worked with many couples that are going through a divorce.  We know how sticky the situation be and we are able to make sure that both sides are informed and know everything that is going throughout the sale of the home.
