We’ve all seen that list of major life stressors, and divorce and moving are both on the list. When you got married and bought your marital St. Petersburg house, you never imagined you’d see the day where you had to move on from both a relationship and a home. Selling a home during a divorce is hard, but at the end of the day, if you can make a fast and easy home transaction, both people can move on with picking up the pieces of life and recovering their joy faster.
Take Assessment of Your Needs
When couples are ending a marriage and moving onto financial decisions, they need to determine the desired outcome with the home. Is it to settle a mortgage? Is it to sell a paid-off property to split the asset? Are there other financial stressors such as a pending foreclosure which could potentially be avoided?
To List or Not to List
If you go through a real estate agent to list the home, you will pass through the waters of a traditional sale- appraisal, showings, fielding offers, home inspections, repairs, and all the other associated costs with the sale of the property. If a home is in tip-top shape, this may be the best way to get the most from the home, although you do have to weigh the time, energy, and stress of enduring the process.
You may try to list and find this out or you may already know that your St. Petersburg house has costly repairs and clean-up and you don’t have the resources to take care of these to prepare the home for a traditional sale. Both people going through the divorce are likely looking at legal and other expenses, so home repair expenses may be a lot to throw on top of the other costs of divorce. Your time might also be very stretched, as you bring this chapter of life to a close. There is another option to consider.
