How to Decide if You Want to Live in Your Home or Sell It During a Divorce

Let’s face it.

Divorce is hard. It comes with many difficult decisions. The most important one is what to do about your home.

First, you will need to decide if you want to continue to live in it or sell it. There are many factors to consider before making that decision. Before you do anything, read a FREE special report prepared by industry experts entitled Divorce: What You Need to Know About Your House, Your Home Loan, and Taxes.

The first step is to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Does your home bring you comfort and emotional security?
  • Does your home remind you of unpleasant memories?
  • Do you want to minimize change by staying where you are?
  • Do you want to sell your home and move with a fresh start?

Only you can answer those questions, but we help you make informed decisions based on what is suitable for your situation.

Your 4 Housing Options when Going Through a Divorce

It’s essential to know your options for your home while going through your divorce.

Here are the 4 options you have when it comes to your home.

1. Sell the House Now and Divide up the Proceeds

Your primary focus is to maximize your home’s selling price. We can help by guaranteeing your home will sell for top dollar. We will also help you figure out your net proceeds after selling expenses and determine your split of the profits.

2. Buy-Out Your Spouse

If you are the one who is leaving, you have the opportunity to start over in a new home with cash in your pocket. However, be aware that the house should be refinanced to release yourself from any obligation or liability. If you don’t, it may make qualifying for a new mortgage difficult for you.

4. Retain Joint Ownership

Some divorcing couples postpone a financial decision about their home and retain joint ownership even though only one spouse lives there. When you are no longer ready to have joint ownership, you will want to keep your eye on tax considerations that may change from the time of your divorce to the time of the ultimate sale.
