Selling a house during a divorce? Everything you need to know.

Selling a house during a divorce? Everything you need to know.

Divorce and selling a home or other real estate are probably two of the most stressful life events. When a couple is going through a divorce deciding what to do with the marital home can be complicated, one person may wish to keep the house by buying the other spouse out, or they may decide to keep the home and sell it after the divorce is finalized, and other couples choose to sell their home during the divorce.

 Why Choose to Sell?

There are countless benefits to selling the house during the divorce process, but some of the most important ones are both the effect that selling has financially and personally. The profit made from the sale of the home could provide each spouse with a solid foundation to start their new life. Personally, selling the marital home and eliminating that shared investment can help provide closure in an emotional and legal aspect. Also, couples often decide to sell their home because it will no longer be affordable to keep it after they have separated.

The Traditional Selling Process:

Traditionally selling a house takes on average anything between 65 and 93 days according to data gathered by Zillow. Additionally, as the seller you will be paying fees to a real estate agent in a time when you are already spending on attorney fees and the costly financial burden that a divorce often brings. That said, let us look at the steps of selling a home.

  1. The first step would be to figure out if the house needs work before bringing it to the market. Once all of that is done, you will also have to discuss who will be paying for the repairs.
  1. Decide if one of you will live at the property while it is being sold and whether the residing spouse will pay the mortgage, if there is one, and costs of upkeep, or if both spouses will contribute.
  1. Now it is time to find a real estate agent, discuss your asking price with your spouse and the agent put the house on the market and wait for it to sell.

Once all that is done, you will start getting offers which on average take 45 to 65 days to start picking up according to Zillow. At this point, you should be prepared to have some serious discussions with both your spouse and the agent, as well as your attorney. If disagreements arise about whether to decline or accept certain offers, you will then most likely seek advice from your attorney and the real estate agent to avoid unnecessary conflicts.

After closing the deal, you will then proceed to divide the profit made from selling the house which in most states that have communal property laws mean that each spouse will get an otherwise fair and equitable 50/50 split.

 But maybe you want to avoid the lengthy process of selling a house the traditional way. You might be asking yourself how you do so, save time and money on the fees. And in that there is always the direct cash buyer option.
