Selling Your Home During A Divorce

Why Should You Hire a Realtor That Specializes In Divorce Real Estate?

Going through a divorce is a hard time in your life – the paperwork, the emotions, separating assets, and all other worries that go with it. We can help you with your real estate needs and assist you through the process with the least amount of stress. 

A Neutral Third Party
We specialize in divorce real estate and have significant experience with clients in similar situations. We’ll be your compassionate, diplomatic and neutral partner throughout the process.

Help You Avoid Costly Mistakes
As your trusted Realtors, we will advise and guide you through this emotional process so that you can make the best choices regarding your real estate.

Realtors Know the Local Market
We will help you sell your current property, provide options for temporary housing and/or assist you with the purchase of a new home.

How can a Realtor assist you to sell your home during a divorce?

  •  We understand the emotions of the entire family and can communicate with both parties and attorneys if requested.
  •  We will prepare a CMA (competitive market analysis) to determine the appropriate list price and make suggestions on preparing your home for sale.
  •  We will assist you with the purchase of a new home or short-term/long-term rentals (if needed).
  •  We can maintain communication with both attorneys throughout the entire process if requested by both parties.
  •  We will help you prepare your home for sale:
  1.  We offer a complimentary staging consultation to make your home show ready and appeal to potential buyers.
  2.  If the home will be vacant while on the market, we typically recommend staging your home with furniture and we can recommend a staging company.
  3.  We offer you a list of our preferred vendors to help you with anything you might need (repairs, flooring, painting, estate sale, moving companies, etc).
  4.  We use professional photographers for video, still, drone, and twilight photos and can provide a floor plan. Photos are so important!
  5.  We have a full-time marketing manager who will use social media, print, and direct mail to help market your home. Our marketing is second to none!

10 Things to consider when selling your home in a divorce:

  1. Select an experienced agent to work with
    The home sale process is complex and requires many decisions that both parties will be involved in. Select an experienced agent with a proven track record.
  2. Take care of deferred maintenance
    Deferred maintenance can greatly impact the sale of your home. Making needed repairs can expedite the sale of your home and maximize profit.  
  3. Ensure all house projects are completed
    Completing ongoing house projects will ensure a favorable impression and maximize selling potential
  4. Let Your Agent Facilitate Communication
    Your agent can help facilitate communication between parties so that everything is handled neutrally. Both spouses will be included in all communications.
  5. Make sure your home is show ready
    Our team will assist you in preparing your home for the market and shows impeccably to potential buyers.
  6. Make sure both lawyers are on board (if needed)
    To avoid any delays or stressful situations, we’ll make sure both lawyers are informed if requested by the homeowners.
  7. Avoid staying during showings and open houses
    Potential buyers want to look at the home on their own and discuss features during a tour.
  8. Make sure contingencies meet your needs
    We’ll review each offer in detail with you to determine which one is best for your situation.
  9. Assistance with finding your next home
    Our team can assist with temporary housing, the purchase of a new home, or relocating to a different state
  10. Trust your agent
    It is critical that you rely on an experienced agent who is knowledgeable and compassionate.
