Guide to Selling A House In A Divorce

Going through a divorce can be tough, and figuring out what to do with your home makes the situation even more stressful. A traditional sale with a sign in the front yard works for many people, but chances are, those homeowners don’t also have to endure a divorce at the same time.

Your other option is a flexible buyer who will address your uniquesituation. Unlike traditional listings, in which you work with a real estate agent, we buy your house promptly and close in under a week!

Guide to Selling A House In A Divorce

Step 1 – Set the Right Price

Pricing is the most critical step. If you price your property incorrectly, you’ll have nothing but headaches and few results.

Do not try and guess how much your property is worth. Real estate values are driven by numerous factors, including:

  • Season
  • Economic conditions
  • School systems
  • Conditions

The most common way to sell a home is with a sign in the yard but that method fails to take into consideration the current divorce, financial problems, and privacy.  I’d recommend that you talk to an investor or cash home buyer that can offer flexibility and custom solutions.

Step 2 – Clean

The money you spend cleaning your home, top to bottom, is a smart investment. If you don’t have the time, then hire someone. A first-time home buyer will want to see a property in perfect condition.

Pay attention to the kitchen and bathrooms.

Step 3 – Clutter Free Home

Your house should be adequately furnished. However, you do not want excess clutter. If you have excessive collectibles, pictures, and knick-knacks throughout the house, consider removing a few before showing off the property.

A storage unit is a sound solution if you have too much stuff.

Buyers love to look at clean counter space, where a toaster, blender, or other kitchen items can be stored safely. The same goes for the garage. Keep it free of clutter and open to possibilities for the new homeowner.

Step 4 – Stage The Home If Needed

If you have already moved your belongings out of the house, consider working with a staging company. You’ll pay for their service, but it’s an investment a potential home buyer will enjoy.

Step 5 – Curb Appeal

Next, consider the outside of your home. First impressions truly do matter when selling a home. Your yard is the first thing a buyer will notice when they arrive. Take some time to mow the grass, trim the bushes, and paint any old signs.

Furthermore, consider a fresh coat of paint for the exterior of your house.
