We have found that as a team, we're able to represent our clients first as individuals and then together as home sellers with a singular goal. We want you to make the most possible profit out of your house and are dedicated to serving you at the highest level. With meticulous attention to detail, our expertise lies in our ability to navigate the emotions of the home sale process swiftly and with respect to our clients.
Our goal is to make selling your home the simplest part of the divorce process. We take the time to educate and inform all parties every step of the way, with a huge emphasis on tailoring the experience to meet the individual needs of our clients.
1. Will I have to communicate with my soon-to-be ex while we get through this? No. We will never ask you to communicate directly if you don't want to.
2. What if the remaining spouse won't get the house ready to list? That's our job to work through. We'll coach and work with the remaining spouse to achieve the task at hand of getting the home sold. It is in everyone's best interest to make the house as attractive and clean as possible.
3. We haven't agreed on how to split the proceeds yet, is that an issue? Potentially. We will need to work hand in hand with your attorneys to coordinate the details. If it has not been agreed upon how to handle the proceeds, they may be tied up in escrow until a solution is found.
4. Should we sell before or after the divorce? In almost every case it is ideal to sell the home before the divorce. Married couples are eligible for a $500,000 tax exclusion while individually you are only eligible for up to $250,000. You may both end up saving thousands of dollars by strategically planning your divorce.
5. What if we have verbally agreed to continue to split the mortgage payment each month until the house sells? We HIGHLY recommend making all financial agreements in writing during a divorce as emotions run high and emotional decisions tend to change over time.
6. We have a friend/family member in real estate who has offered to help us out, is that a good idea? Every situation is different, but in our experience having a completely neutral third party representing you throughout the sale is best for all parties. With us there is no favoritism, we come from a place of compassion and support.
7. What if we disagree about how to proceed with an offer? As your real estate professionals, it is our job to thoroughly explain what every detail of a contract entails. Once all parties are fully educated on the details, we find that there is usually one clear, reasonable path to take. We will never force you to agree to anything you don't want to.
8. How available will our Realtors be? We are dedicated to our clients and are available every day of the week by call, text and email. We are flexible and accommodating to make sure we always have time to answer your questions.
9. What if things change and we no longer want to sell? We have an easy-in, easy-out contract. You will be able to cancel your listing at any time.
10. What are the benefits of selling? When deciding to sell or not, it's important to do a cost-benefit analysis to make sure that selling is the right financial decision. We can do the analysis for you, and walk through it with you to determine which path is right for you. Considering what you get from keeping or selling the house is vital. Selling a previously shared home is often the cleanest break two people can make. If done correctly, you may stand to make a nice profit to offset the other costs associated with divorce, and start your new lives off right.
