Selling Your Home During a Divorce

If you’re wondering about the ins and outs of selling your home during a divorce in North Alabama… we’ll dive into the steps and things to look out for in this article.

With over 50% of American marriages ending in divorce, many residents are looking for pieces of advice about selling a home during a divorce.

A home is one of the most valuable joint assets, and obviously cannot be divided without first liquidating. While a divorce is one of the most stressful and emotionally charged life events, it’s important to remain rational. There are several factors to consider when facing a divorce in a real estate market that has yet to rebound from the housing bubble burst.

Determine if (and when) You Will Be Selling Your Home During Your Divorce

In many divorce cases, one spouse will keep the home, buying out the departing spouse’s share.

In many cases, agreements are made where one spouse uses the house for a set period of time (this is usually used when there are children in the home), and then sold at a certain date (usually when the children reach a certain age).

Get Professional Help – Agents and Home Buyers / Investors

Selling a home is a difficult process when everything is going right.

During a divorce, you have a lot going on, and a lot to consider. You shouldn’t take on the task of selling your home yourself. You may have disagreements with your spouse about selling price or other issues. By working with a real estate professional… either a reputable agent or real estate investment firm, you’ll both have a neutral third party who can help you determine a fair selling price and handle the marketing of your home.

If you need to sell your house fast… reputable local real estate investment firms like Market Home Buyers may be a great option.  Firms like ours actually BUY HOUSES (rather than listing them as agents do)… and we pay cash and can close quickly if you need to sell this house fast.

If you can wait the time it’ll take to list it with an agent and sell it on the open market, going with a real estate agent is your best bet.

But if you can’t wait the 3-9 months it sometimes takes to sell a house in this market in Huntsville… chat with us to see what we can offer you for your house during your divorce.

Set (and stick to) a Timeline

It’s important when selling your house during a divorce to keep a timeline.

You should put your home for sale in advance. Set firm closing dates, moving dates and times, and coordinate which spouse will be handling the sale (or talking to the real estate agent). Make sure that each of these agreements is in writing, and negotiate penalties for breaching the agreements.

This helps ensure a smooth, surprise-free home sale.
