Video: Selling a home due to separation or divorce

Separation or divorce is one of the top five stressors. The stress can be worse when you’re forced to sell your home. So, where do you start? 


For a stress-free (or at least a less stressful) sale, it’s important to find a trusted agent who is experienced and who can liaise with both parties while remaining impartial to the situation at the same time. It is important you are both provided with the same information at the same time so that when an offer is presented to you, you are both fully aware of the sales campaign. 


When you have an empathetic, impartial agent, they can help you prepare your home for sale so it sells quickly. Once the property settles, your agent can ensure the funds from the home sale are distributed quickly. 


A word of warning: If you involve divorce lawyers, you might have to wait years for the funds from your sale to be released. It’s worth avoiding putting the sale funds in escrow until you and your partner sign the divorce papers, as that just puts extra stress on everyone involved. 


I’ve had many years of experience dealing with the sale of a home due to divorce. If you find yourself in that situation, let me help you.
