Divorce can be complex and emotionally difficult. While you’re in this painful situation, you may, like other divorcing couples who own homes, be looking for a way to sell your home during your divorce at [ville_marché]. Here are our best ideas and strategies to help you manage the real estate side of your divorce as efficiently and prudently as possible.

Houses during a divorce… it’s complicated

In a divorce, both people want to split everything they own in two. For liquid possessions (like money), it’s very easy to do. For other goods, particularly real estate, this is much more difficult to do. After all, how can you divide a house in two? It’s a property that derives its value from its whole, and usually it’s a structure erected on land, so it can’t be moved. Since it’s not possible to cut the house in two, should we choose which of the two will keep it? In some divorces, one person keeps the house if they can afford to pay for it (but this represents a huge expense, so people rarely want to make such a commitment).

How to divide real estate

The best way to divide real estate is to sell it.divorce, sell your house quickly

Your property may incur costs during the selling process, or perhaps you have unpaid bills or a partial mortgage on the property. The divorcing couple can then sell their property and ask their lawyers to use the proceeds to pay off other debts.

The remaining amount can then be split between the two parties, with each receiving its share (for example, 50/50).

But this raises the question: how do you sell the property?

The fastest way to sell a house during a divorce

When the time comes to sell, most people think of going through a real estate agent. Unfortunately, this poses a few problems:

  • The agent will ask homeowners to renovate first. – But who pays for it?
  • The agent will then advertise the house, and the sale could take from 3 to 6 months (sometimes longer). – Can either of you wait that long?
  • The agent will then involve both divorcees in negotiations with the buyer, and there will be a LOT of paperwork to complete.

This way of selling is time-consuming and costly, and can make the divorce process even worse.

Such a company will buy your home quickly, for cash, as is (and there’s never a commission or fee to pay).
