How to Sell Your House During a Divorce
Divorce can be a trying time for everyone involved. It’s possible that the last thing people want to do right now is to collaborate with Missouri home buyers to sell a house fast.
Depending on your circumstances, going through this major life change while dividing assets can be emotionally and physically draining. Even if you are splitting on good terms, the process of selling a house can be overwhelming and stressful. There are simple ways to sell your house and move on to the next chapter of your life. We make the process as simple as possible at Goliath Homes!
Sell Your Home Without Using An Agent!
A quick or direct sale has numerous advantages. You won’t have to worry about preparing your home for the MLS, keeping it clean, making repairs, hiring a photographer, marketing the home, paying to have it listed, or paying any commissions once it sells. With a direct sale, you will know from the start how much we can offer and when we can close.
There is no debate. Who is responsible for what?
Things you may not have previously discussed can quickly become a source of contention during a divorce. Who will clean the house, pay for the landscaping, and deal with the lender, insurance company, and utility companies? It is critical to collaborate throughout the process because selling can be time-consuming. Potential conflicts can be avoided if the house is sold in a matter of days rather than months.
A quick sale ensures completion.
Both parties can move on quickly because there are no financial ties to a shared property. With a listing, you could spend months looking for a buyer and then closing the deal. If you are going through a divorce, you will most likely want to move on quickly rather than dragging things out. You won’t have to prolong an already painful situation by selling directly to a buyer like Goliath Homes. Everyone will benefit from a quick and easy sale.
If You Use An Agent…
Set clear boundaries ahead of time if you decide to try your hand at listing. Decide how to handle selling costs and who will handle the agent, showings, cleaning, maintenance, and so on. Determine your lowest acceptable price and, if not already specified in your divorce agreement, decide how to divide the profits. While you might get lucky and be done right away, you’re more likely to be waiting for several weeks or months.
